My trip to Brainpop
My trip to Brainpop
Hi, my name is Jackie I am going to write about a class trip to Brainpop’s headquarters. For those of you who don’t know what Brainpop is, it’s a website where kids can learn about history, science, math anything even insects and while you are learning you still have fun! Anyway my trip was more fun than educational . Also there were so many parts of the trip I loved even the bus ride. My favorite parts of the trip was drawing our own cartoon, and looking at everyone's job.
One of my favorite parts of the trip was drawing our own cartoon. It was so amazing in the office seeing everyone working but, there was this one room where it was so much cooler. It was the place where the people in charge have their meetings, and I actually got to sit in the boss’s chair. Before my class and I started drawing the cartoons the tour guide show use the steps on how the people from Brainpop actually make the videos. That was a lot of fun but that's a different story. And a minute before we started to draw, the tour guide gave my class and I a real cartoon that they made into a video just in case we needed an explanation. Everyone had to have their own idea about what to write about. It took me awhile to actually find the right thing to draw about. And then I finally chose... ALIENS! I knew it sounded funny but that’s what Brainpop is sort of all about! Right in the middle of all of the cartooning an actual ARTIST FROM BRAINPOP CAME INTO THE ROOM!!! Then our tour guide asked if he could draw a quick sketch of a cartoon. It was an amazing moment and, my and I class got to keep the autographed cartoon it was like I was the most optimistic person in the whole world.
Of course I saved the best for last. My first favorite part of the trip was figuring out everyone’s job. I loved going around looking at what were people’s jobs and seeing what they are doing:P.S It’s the people who work there who were looking at. First we went to this one guy who was creating a new game called “Guts and Bolts,” he only showed us the introduction to the game but, it was still fun just watching the introduction. Next my class and I went to another guy, he is a illustrator but, when he draws he draws on a pad that is sort of like a piece of paper. So, what ever you draw on the pad it comes up on the computer. We also found this job where everyone that works there is included but, for them to do this everyone MUST have a map of the United States. The reason why everyone must have a map of the United States is because say someone in Texas accidentally called an illustrator for help, the illustrator looks at the map and sees who answers calls from Texas.
That field trip was so, so, so much fun!!! To me that was like a one in a lifetime experience! What surprised me about this trip was the way it looked like inside the room. Cause it looked like a regular office, I thought inside there was going to be cameras, green screens, and recording booths to add sound to the cartoons and games. But, it was still a fun trip.
