Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Busy World of Richard Scarry, like the Scarry books themselves, uses themes that are congruent with preschool and early elementary children. These include love of parents, mastery of all the motor, language and social skills that they see in the world around them, possession (it's mine!) personal routines such as eating, dressing, sleeping, and family living. The aim of the series is to stimulate imagination and foster vicarious play, to teach pro-social behavior (generosity, friendliness, persistence, understanding of others points of view) to help children move beyond family attachments to world of friendships and community, and to help children develop skills on which academic learning depends. Each story has a simple plot line, enough continuity to facilitate understanding, but includes scene changes that allow children to develop early TV literacy skills - to understand and distinguish between scene changes that indicate simultaneous happenings in other locations; and those that indicate temporal sequences. Keeping track of characters and holding events in memory through changes of scene requires considerable cognitive processing in a young children. Interstitials provide explicit educational elements, including safety tips and information on how things work. The How Things Work segment are to help children notice and think about relations of parts to whole objects in their world, to wonder how things are made and where they come from.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Each week the Stargate explorers enter a new world. About the only things they can be sure of are that they will encounter new and vastly different life forms and cultures, that they will face problems that require functioning smoothly as a team, and that the team is only as strong as the character and abilities of its individual members. At its core, Stargate Infinity explores issues, attitudes, and behaviors important to learning how to get along with others, whether those others are from different races, cultures, and species, or from their own team of trainees. The young explorers serve as models for the young audience. As the cadets learn hard lessons about such things as trying to see the world from the perspective of other cultures, the positive benefits in diversity, or how to mesh their own strengths and abilities with those of others on the team, so too do young viewers. Each episode examines fundamental issues about how and why to get along with others who are very different from oneself, and about the kinds of abilities and strength of character necessary to be a Stargate Explorer and a good person.

With an entertaining narrative, the series combines focused examinations of certain topics such as Animal Appetites(which explores the various diets of animals along with information about how animals catch and eat their food, how diets determine their lifestyle, etc.), Animal Antics(a hilarious look at the crazy physical antics and talents of certain species), Animal Babies(an intimate look at babies of various species, how they are born, how they are raised and the difficulties and delights of growing up), along with shows which focus solely on certain animals such as elephants, bears, and monkeys. In these shows a thorough and entertaining exploration of the specific animal takes the viewer into that animal's world as we see where it lives, how it eats, how it plays, how the family unit operates, and what threatens and supports its survival. Animal Atlas also promotes responsibility toward wildlife issues by educating the viewer about endangered species and wildlife habits, as well as informing viewers how to support wildlife conservation.
