Primary Sources accompany over 200 BrainPOP topics, challenging students to examine and interpret photographs, videos, diaries, and other documents. If a topic has a Primary Source, you’ll see the Primary Source tile on the topic page.
Primary Sources present students with questions that prompt students to open the Primary Source in a new browser tab. Just click View or Read at the top. Then students can toggle between the Primary Source and the questions.
