Do your students have individual accounts? If you have a school-wide BrainPOP subscription, students will be able to use our SnapThought ® tool to play the game BioDive game! 

SnapThought allows students to capture meaningful moments in their game play with opportunities for brief written reflection. Once students are logged in, the SnapThought tool will appear below any games that offer this capability.

During game play, students can click the SnapThought tool up to five times. A thumbnail, or “snapshot” is generated and stored on the bottom left of the screen.  At any point in the game, students can click their snapshot(s), type a brief reflection, which may be a response to an open-ended prompt, and save or submit to the teacher’s account for you to review and respond to.

You can use the SnapThought tool to facilitate discussion around game play and strategies, or have students submit their snapshots to you for assessment or accountability. Here are a few prompts for using the SnapThought tool in the BioDive game:

  • Take a snapshot during or after watching the video. Summarize how venomous marine snails hunt prey. 
  • Take a snapshot after watching the video. What did you observe about the snail’s hunting technique?
  • Take a snapshot after reading the article. How and why is it important to protect venomous marine snails?
  • Take a snapshot after exploring the virtual reality ocean. What are three types of prey the venomous snails hunt?
