BrainPOP Movies

BrainPOP celebrated Women’s History Month with three brand new movies:

BrainPOP Game

With Earth Day around the corner, we are thrilled to launch a new eco-friendly game:

From our newest partner, Springbay Studio, this game challenges students to rebuild a wetland habitat destroyed by a hurricane.

BrainPOP Jr.

This month, BrainPOP Jr. introduced two new tools, a movie about science tools, and a new game, too!  

Make-a-Map is now available on BrainPOP Jr! With this tool, students in K-3 construct concept maps by connecting images, keywords, and clips from our movies as well as adding their own ideas.

New to concept mapping? No problem! Check out BrainPOP Jr.’s Concept Maps topic and tutorials at BrainPOP Educators.

A tool that empowers students to capture meaningful moments in game play, SnapThought is now available on BrainPOP Jr. in selected GameUp games.   

Students can submit annotated screenshots to a teacher through My BrainPOP and teachers can view the snapshots, write a response, and send it back!

Science Tools
From microscopes and binoculars to rulers and scales, students join Annie and Moby on an exploration of science tools in this new BrainPOP Jr. movie.

Teachley Add and Subtract
Students use addition and subtraction strategies to help jungle animals collect gold blocks in this new, interactive game.
