We’ve put together some ideas for you so your students can continue learning at their own pace, following their own interests, throughout the summer break. Let’s face it, if the last few months are anything to go by it’s probably going to rain (a lot) so there will be plenty of opportunities to break out the BrainPOP!
6 Quick Ideas:
- Challenge your pupils to become BrainPOP experts! Ask them to identify their personal interests and browse BrainPOP UK to learn about topics important to them.
- Invite students to read different books and investigate the life and works of the authors – new movies this summer include Jack London, Maya Angelou, Judy Blume, and J.R.R. Tolkien to name a few, so keep your eyes peeled.
- Suggest that students document their learning using digital photography and share the images using Web 2.0 tools like Photopeach.
- Students could also document their summer adventures using apps like Comic Life or Book Writer - the finished articles will be great fun to share with fellow students when they return next term.
- Encourage students to write their own BrainPOP script or produce their own video on a topic they’re interested in.
- Have your students download the free BrainPOP Featured Movie app and challenge friends and family to a different quiz every day.
