Four FREE apps from BrainPop offer video lessons on math, science, Spanish and more
The Smart Apps staff have been huge fans of the BrainPOP apps since the beginning. BrainPOP offers a huge assortment of short animated videos on a large number of topics. The videos are very nicely done, don't feel "school-boring" and offer a great deal of educational value. There are now four different FREE apps available for Android, so to make it easier for you, I have included them all in this handy post!
Do you also have an Apple device? We have a list of BrianPOP apps on our sister site, Smart Apps for Kids.
***Please note, these apps do contain in-app purchases, but they can easily be disabled in the settings of your device.
