Educator Resources for Sortify
Sortify is an original BrainPOP game in which students categorize and sort information from BrainPOP movies into bins representing key concepts. This information is presented on tiles that represent people, places, quantities, or ideas. The sorting process requires students to group together like or complimentary tiles and to make distinctions between dissimilar or unrelated tiles. Students earn more points when sorting tiles into bins labeled with more complex concepts. They may also earn bonus points for accurately sorting all tiles into only four bins. Scores for Sortify will vary based on the combination and difficulty of the selected bins. Accruing the highest possible score indicates that a student has understood the topic enough to strategically group and categorize key concepts and ideas.
