Science is behind every real-world phenomenon. BrainPOP Science helps lower secondary school students build the skills to explore and gather evidence to explain them with confidence.
Claim (C) > Evidence (E) > Reasoning (R)
BrainPOP Science is a phenomenon-driven middle school science product that provides robust investigations, units, embedded assessments, and actionable diagnostics for 6-8th grade across Physical, Life, and Earth & Space Science.
Our scaffolded investigations, interactive tools, embedded assessments, and actionable diagnostics facilitate three-dimensional learning, support the 5E instructional model, and guide students toward mastery of science, engineering, and technology standards.
1.5 minutes What is BrainPOP Science?
A BrainPOP Science investigationis a robust, interactive lesson.
A single investigation covers up to one week of instruction and includes key activities: examining phenomena, collecting evidence, articulating claims and reasoning, and checking for understanding along the way.
BrainPOP Science investigations are part of BrainPOP Science Units, which include a Unit-level assessment.
BrainPOP Science investigations include a collection of Data Manipulatives, Simulations, 3D Worlds, exclusive science movies, and Check for Understanding (CFU) assessments.
Exclusive Science Moviesleverage the power of BrainPOP’s animations to explain hard-to-teach science concepts with exclusive, embedded videos.
Simulationsallow students to observe science principles in action and manipulate models to test hypotheses and collect evidence while also strengthening their conceptual understanding.
Data Manipulativesallow students to interact with scientific data from real-world scenarios while improving data literacy skills.
3D Worldsenable students to explore virtual environments that reflect real-world phenomena and encourage scientific argumentation and discussion.
When an Investigation is assigned, all of the individual core pieces, including any optional pieces the teacher has chosen to add, will be assigned at once. Throughout the Investigation, students collectevidence, which they can then use in their final explanation construction.
Teachers can choose to add additional resources to support differentiation in the classroom. These differentiated resources vary by Investigation topic, and can include vocabulary, games, movies, Simulations, readings, or other activities.
