    I saw the movie the other day and it was really great. The resources given during the webinar are definitely relevant to the movie. I hope everyone gets a chance to take their students.

    Thanks to everyone at BrianPop and IMax for an outstanding webinar. I am excited to use the resources you provided in conjunction with the movie Born to be Wild 3D. I will use this with my students for an Earth awareness project in the month of April. We are already learning about the endangered species the Giant Panda in 3rd grade, so this will also be something we could add to that discussion. I look forward to joining more of the webinars provided by BrainPop in the future. Now if only i could convince my school district to purchas a subscription to your site, all would be fantastic!
    Thanks again,
    Debra Knox

    This was a great webinar. I loved the fact that the director of the movie was on talking about it. I have not heard of the movie before this. I cannot wait to see the movie now.
    I use brainpop and brainpopjr almost daily with my class and I still learned about some new resources on here. I haven’t ever done the spotlight before. It just shows me that I can learn more about brainpop. Thanks! I really enjoyed it.

    I have been using Brainpop all school year and it is wonderful. It is so exciting to have it team up with IMAX to educate our students about nature during earth awareness month. It will be exciting to use the things I learned today. Thank you!

    What a great webinar! Even though I am a teacher of Language Arts, I loved listening to Drew talk about the production of Born to Be Wild. I have to say, my favorite part was the lesson plans. I appreciate that you tied the lessons to multiple subjects, including my own! I look forward to looking at more of these lesson plans in depth.

    I really enjoyed this webinar. I can’t wait to show my kids the short videos so they are excited about the IMAX movie as well as the cool brainpop items to keep the lessons going about Earth Awareness. Great information. I’m so excited
