BrainPOP is fun and interactive for children. Only certain topics are unlocked, however.

I would definately use this in my classroom. It was colorful, very easy to use and navigating around the site was also very easy. My students would really get into this.
Very easy to navigate the site.

Great resource for surprise days.. fire drill? Pep Rally .. shortened day?
Activating or reinforcement involves students with cute but accurate conceptual presentations followed by quizzes.

This site seems fun and easy for the students to use themselves. The movies they show before asking review questions are interesting and colorful. There are many activities, games and other fun learning tools on the site as well. I specifically like the word wall, which not only displays the word and definition, but verbally says the definition as well. Great strategy for ELL students and auditory learners.

elementary preservice teachers. I taught a model science lesson for preservice
teachers, who were preparing to teach their first science lesson in their field
I introduced my model lesson on sound with the sound video in BrainPOP Science.
I found the interactive material and animated movie to be accurate and an
excellent way to enhance my elementary science example lesson.
The BrainPOP site is well organized and easy to locate science materials. I
believe this website would be a good resource for preservice teachers when
developing their science lesson plans for elementary and middle school students.
