Searching for lesson ideas? You’ve hit the jackpot! BrainPOP Educators offers Lesson Idea pages chock full of learning resources for every movie (BrainPOP, BrainPOP Jr., and BrainPOP ELL) and all of our games, too!  Just click the Lesson Idea button at the bottom of a topic page (or the Lesson Idea tab for Game Up) to access a range of support materials, from videos and implementation tips to graphic organizers, calendar tie-ins and more.  

At the heart of every 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.
