These conclusions are consistent with nationally published curriculum goals in the natural sciences.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Animal Atlas" is an entirely appropriate title for this engaging and informative series. Just as browsing through a good atlas makes information about terrain and natural boundaries accessible and appealing, this program brings information about the natural world of animals to viewers in a non-didactic, entertaining way. Its approach in no way diminishes the learning that takes place when observations lead to conclusions - and young minds will draw many conclusions about the natural world shown in this series. These conclusions are consistent with nationally published curriculum goals in the natural sciences. They include concepts such as the functions of animals in an ecosystem (predator/prey relationships, etc.), the elements of animal classification, and the general emphasis on life science.
