You should check out the website and look around. If you type in "Free Movies" you can see a few different ones so you get an idea if you think it's worth it or not. There is so much more to the website too! There are activities, lesson ideas, games, drawing and writing activities, plus more! You can have your students take a quiz at the end of the video (paper or online). I just have the students read the questions and we answer them as a class. I just love that there is a movie for almost every concept I teach. I swear the kids sometimes listen more to the robot than me! haha!
Here's a sample BrainPOP movie from You Tube on butterflies:

Do you use BrainPOP Jr. in your classroom?!
