Have your students signed up for individual accounts? If you have a school-wide subscription to BrainPOP, students will be able to use our SnapThought ® tool to play the game Satisfraction.

The SnapThought tool 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 per game. A thumbnail, or “snapshot” is generated and stored on the bottom left of the screen.  At any point, 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, 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 Satisfraction.

  • Take a snapshot before you click the checkmark. Explain how your fraction equals the given fraction, even though they both have different denominators.
  • Take a snapshot of your solution but also give another equivalent fraction.
  • Take a snapshot explaining why fractions must be equal parts of the whole.
  • Bonus: Take a snapshot that shows a line of symmetry.
