The Lesson Ideas Page

Posted by jglassman on

Did you know that we provide a Lesson Ideas Page chock full of support materials for every movie (BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr., and BrainPOP ELL) and all of our games, too? It’s true!  The Lesson Ideas Page hosts a range of support materials, from videos and implementation tips to graphic organizers, calendar tie-ins and more!

At the heart of every BrainPOP Lesson Ideas Page are lesson plans that provide scaffolded support for all types of learners, and guidance to make the most of the associated movie or game. Every BrainPOP, BrainPOP ELL, and GameUp lesson plan includes the following:

  • Learning Objectives
  • Materials & Preparation
  • Step-by-Step Procedure
  • Related Vocabulary
  • Related Movies
  • Extension Activities
  • Alignments to Common Core State Standards and/or Next Generation Science Standards

Similarly, for each of its topics, BrainPOP Jr. provides activities for home and school, as well as a Background Information page for teachers and parents about the associated topic.

To find a specific Lesson Ideas Page, click the “Lesson Ideas” button that appears on every topic or games page. You can also access Lesson Ideas them from the following Lesson Idea directories in BrainPOP Educators within the Lesson Plans & Materials menu:
