BrainPOP Updates

Here’s the latest from BrainPOP:

Fresh Content
We continued to expand our library of diverse, cross-curricular topics this winter and spring. In February, with an eye on helping you bolster Black History Month lessons, we published Jim Crow, Motown, Muhammad Ali, and Tuskegee Airmen. Reptiles got an update in March and we also went live with the House on Mango Street and Marco Polo.

Next up, we’re prepping to launch a topic profiling Harvey Milk. Officially debuting May 22, which California observes as Harvey Milk Day, the new topic is a biography of the activist that contextualizes the LGBTQ+ rights movement and its relationship to some of the modern-day issues kids hear about on the news. Read more about our decision to make this topic - and the thoughtful process behind its creation - on the BrainPOP Educators blog.
