BrainPOP Jr.

I first discovered BrainPOP when we started Connections Academy. They provided us a subscription for it and my 5 year old went on it all the time viewing the little educational movies. She especially loved the one about rainbows under the science section. However I didn’t talk about it before because you had to pay for the subscription to view the movies. (Some of them are free if you want to check out the site!)

Now I just found out that they have a BrainPOP Jr. and it’s free right now! This is a great site for children in grades K-3. What it has are short animated movies that cover a wide range of age appropriate educational topics. My 5 year old sits there and loves to view all of them and also loves to do the quizzes, activities and play the games.

This is an excellent site to incorporate into your curriculum!

    Hey there!

    We're really glad you like BrainPOP Jr! We just launched it in September, and we're still building the site.

    We love hearing ideas, so let us know if there is anything you'd like to see.

    Thanks for the kind words- they made our day!
