New Feature

Sensitive Content Note
Teachers and parents have asked that we give them a heads-up when a BrainPOP topic contains potentially sensitive material. To address this, we’ve added a notice on topic pages with movies that have some sensitive content. You’re the best judge of what’s developmentally appropriate for your students, and we hope this notice will serve as a helpful guide.
