    These lesson ideas are fantastic!! I love that they give specific grade levels and the content standard alignment! There are endless resources and scripts to make it very user friendly for teachers. My favorite idea that can easily implemented and revisited often as well as shared with parents/community/other teachers is to create a safe site list of favorite websites the class often visits. Excellent job, BrainPOP!

    I love that with the latest update, the word wall has become word play. This gives more options for vocabulary interaction! I also love the way that resources are grouped here for teachers to choose what they can use with students. This allows educators to see how far they can take the topic besides looking at face value. This is the one-stop shop! Great job, BrainPop!

    I really like how there are different ways to teach internet safety. There are different elements to being safe and I think BrainPop has narrowed each down and created interesting and engaging lessons for each one.

    I like how BrainPop gives you many different resources to use with the Internet Safety topic. They gear them to different age levels, different learning styles and are aligned with Common Core Standards. It helps knowing how, where and when to use the resources in BrainPop and incorporate them into a bigger unit.
