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 Curse Reverse.

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 Curse Reverse game:

  • Take a snapshot after completing a few rooms. How does building the towers get more challenging room to room?
  • Take a snapshot when placing a treasure. How are you using math to do this?
  • Take a snapshot when you’ve finished a level. How did you use math to achieve this?
  • Take a snapshot when you feel challenged. What is challenging about this moment? How might you solve it?
  • Take a snapshot after playing. What rooms did you explore? Which did you like best?
