Educator Resources for Sortify: Nutrition

Sortify is an original BrainPOP game in which students categorize and sort information from BrainPOP movies into bins representing key concepts. With the Nutrition data set, students can practice sorting food tiles into bin categories such as dairy, grains, high in good fats, and proteins. Students earn more points when sorting tiles into bins labeled with more complex concepts, such as balanced meals and high in fiber. Students may also earn bonus points for accurately sorting all tiles into only four bins. Scores for Sortify will vary based on the combination and difficulty of the selected bins. Accruing the highest possible score indicates that a student has understood the topic enough to strategically group and categorize key concepts and ideas.
