Make a Movie about a Mystery Animal!

Posted by jglassman on

Try this fun activity using our brand new Make-a-Movie tool.  After students explore an animal on BrainPOP, like Reptiles or Mammals, invite them to think of a species from that animal class. For example, a rattlesnake (reptiles) or tiger (mammals). Tell students to keep their animal choice a secret!

Using Make-a-Movie (accessible from the topic page), students create a movie describing their mystery animal–where it lives, what it eats, adaptations, etc–without revealing its identity. Finally, students share their movie and challenge classmates to identify the mystery animal.
