Every BrainPOP Jr. topic page has an interactive word play feature with 5 key vocabulary terms from the movie. Here are fun and creative ways you can use this word play with students:

What’s Your Definition? Show the words prior to watching the movie. Challenge students to create a definition in their own words, then click on the word to reveal the BrainPOP Jr. definition.

Important Words: Challenge students to brainstorm the 5 most important vocabulary words they heard in the movie. Then display the word play and compare it to students’ lists.

Words at Home: Click the printer icon and select “Save as PDF” from your printing options. Share the PDF with students and their families by uploading it to your class blog or attaching it to an email, and encourage students to continue their word work at home.

Act it out: Select a word and click the 3rd tab “act”. Pair students to act out a short dialog using the word in context.   Choose a pair to present to the class and transcribe their words into the feature interface.
