We will be using BrainPOP Jr. and BrainPOP for class this week.  We have been learning about food, food groups, serving sizes, and have made a Fruit and Vegetable Diary to keep track of our 5 servings each day.  BrainPOP is a paid subscription, educational site.  They also have free movies of the day, free trials, an Educator site THAT IS FREE! So go check it out! They also have apps for the iphone and the ipad! As they say at Brainpop…….. The more you know…. the more you know! Very True!
