Teachers and students logging in with their My BrainPOP educator or student accounts can access Make-a-Movie on every BrainPOP topic. With Make-a-Movie, you can make your own BrainPOP-style movies, building scenes with images from BrainPOP’s library, or creating your own drawings. Students can record narration, manipulate backgrounds, and add transitions between scenes.

Make-a-Movie cultivates planning, organizing, writing, collaborating, and analyzing skills. Students take ownership of their learning as they engage with curricular content on a deeper level and demonstrate their comprehension of a BrainPOP topic.

Students can submit completed movies to you for evaluation in My BrainPOP. You can also download student movies in My Classes.

BrainPOP Educators provides teaching resources to help you get started using Make-a-Movie in your classroom, including:
