Football

Ten-four-HUT-HUT! Need a football primer before the big game? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to the sport that is (American) football! They’ll start you out with the basics, telling you how big the field is, how it’s divided up, and what you can expect to find on it. Then you’ll learn how the game is played and what kinds of other players you’ll see on the field. Find out the difference between offense and defense, and discover what they mean by downs, plays, substitution, penalties, quarters, halftime, and more. You’ll be a football pro before you know it! (Just don’t quit your day job expecting to be drafted...)
