Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS is a show that features the most adventuresome teacher on the planet, Ms. Frizzle, and her group of students who dutifully follow her approach to education-by taking magical field trips to learn about anything that interests her or them. All the students are curious, but with each one, there is often a personal problem that needs solving and the field trip has a way of dovetailing with the personal challenge to get everything all worked out. The class has been on 52 field trips, traveling in a magic bus that can transform its shape and power source, so it can travel through any environment, from the bottom of the ocean to outermost space. Ms. Frizzle can handle it all, from driving the bus, navigating unfamiliar terrain, to guiding the children's learning through inquiry. She is undeterred and rarely discouraged and expects no less from her students. Ms. Frizzle is amazingly understanding and permissive in her approach and the children are ambitiously curious about the world as a result. It's not just the bus that's magic.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. MAGI-NATION - For young people today, new information is generally no more than a mouse-click away. Knowledge is readily there for the taking if kids simply know how to appropriately access it and effectively make use of it. In this context, many of the most useful and important things that youngsters can learn center on discovery, analysis and problem-solving -- how do kids get the "right" information and make proper use of it? What questions should be asked? How does one assess veracity? How does one weigh alternatives? How are decisions best arrived at? How does one decide when aims can be accomplished independently, and if help is needed, how does one go about enlisting support? Above all, how can goals be achieved ethically and with regard to the greater good? In an enticing new world filled with excitement, mystery, and danger, "Magi-Nation" addresses these vital learning goals. Tony, Edyn and Strag, along with their human and decidedly non-human colleagues model their successful, and sometimes less than successful, attempts to analyze difficult situations, set appropriate goals, and creatively seek solutions to the dire dilemmas in which they find themselves. In the course of a series of intriguing codes, riddles and other puzzles that Tony, Edyn and Strag are presented with along the way, viewers are furthermore given the engaging opportunity to not only observe others go through the problem solving cycle, but to make use of their unique knowledge base and burgeoning problem solving skills to address conundrums on their own.

She lives among a dozen assorted characters, including her fairy best friends, Opal and Jasper, a garden elf, a wood nymph, possum, bats, other fairies, rats, a small colony of fleas, a lizard and her arch-rival, Saphira, who is also her fairy cousin. While Pearlie is very likable, she is a bit of a busy-body who likes to arrange things according to over-ambitious plans that ultimately get her in trouble. She gets along with everyone so, ultimately, every problem is solved and Pearlie learns a lesson. However, her greatest challenges are usually presented by her one enemy, the bully and diva, Saphira. Fortunately, Pearlie rises to Saphira's challenges, not with meanness, but by outwitting her. Overall, learning is a constant process for Pearlie because she has big responsibilities, taking care of an entire little community, but she is indomitable and tenacious and ends up preserving order and happiness in Jubilee Park.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. MAGI-NATION - For young people today, new information is generally no more than a mouse-click away. Knowledge is readily there for the taking if kids simply know how to appropriately access it and effectively make use of it. In this context, many of the most useful and important things that youngsters can learn center on discovery, analysis and problem-solving -- how do kids get the "right" information and make proper use of it? What questions should be asked? How does one assess veracity? How does one weigh alternatives? How are decisions best arrived at? How does one decide when aims can be accomplished independently, and if help is needed, how does one go about enlisting support? Above all, how can goals be achieved ethically and with regard to the greater good? In an enticing new world filled with excitement, mystery, and danger, "Magi-Nation" addresses these vital learning goals. Tony, Edyn and Strag, along with their human and decidedly non-human colleagues model their successful, and sometimes less than successful, attempts to analyze difficult situations, set appropriate goals, and creatively seek solutions to the dire dilemmas in which they find themselves. In the course of a series of intriguing codes, riddles and other puzzles that Tony, Edyn and Strag are presented with along the way, viewers are furthermore given the engaging opportunity to not only observe others go through the problem solving cycle, but to make use of their unique knowledge base and burgeoning problem solving skills to address conundrums on their own.
