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 Lakeland 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 ideas and prompts for using the SnapThought tool in the Lakeland game.

  • Take a snapshot when you’re struggling to understand what to do. Explain what the problem is and how you think you can solve it. 
  • Take a snapshot after nutrient levels have affected your farm(s). Describe the effects and how you can prevent them in the future.
  • Take a snapshot when you are conflicted between priorities. Identify the conflict and what you think you should do.
  • Take a snapshot after making a decision between conflicting priorities. Describe what happened and whether you are satisfied with the choice you made.
  • Take a snapshot toward the end of the game. If you could start over knowing what you now know, what would you do differently and why.
