Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas continues its long series life by using technology to consistently improve the essential visual component of the episodes. The high definition video of the arresting animals and animal elements is well used to engage viewers and lead them through a sequence of valued and meaningful insights. One of the series strengths continues to be that it does not just present a list of animal facts but links a wide variety of information into sequences that make knowledge of the animal kingdom both simpler and easier to remember. The interstitial quizzes have become not just summaries of previous information but a lead in to the next organized sequence of information. The tone of credited narrator Eric Schwartz is perfect for the target group of 13 to 16 year olds. It is non professorial and faux flip again, ideal for the target mindset of self confident adolescence. Yet the vocabulary is rich. It presumes the understanding of the words like behemoth and adaptation, but gives enough context to add that word to young viewers vocabulary without getting pedantic. Great information in a rich visual context.

Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons to their own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together in a way that always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.

The series Zoo Clues will keep 13 to16 year old viewers engaged for 30 minutes with the nearly infinite visual richness, animal characteristics, and wild range of animal behaviors. Beyond its target audience, both older and younger audiences should find this look across the amazing world of animals fascinating. Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons to their own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together in a way that always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas continues its long series life by using technology to consistently improve the essential visual component of the episodes. The high definition video of the arresting animals and animal elements is well used to engage viewers and lead them through a sequence of valued and meaningful insights. One of the series strengths continues to be that it does not just present a list of animal facts but links a wide variety of information into sequences that make knowledge of the animal kingdom both simpler and easier to remember. The interstitial quizzes have become not just summaries of previous information but a lead in to the next organized sequence of information. The tone of credited narrator Eric Schwartz is perfect for the target group of 13 to 16 year olds. It is non professorial and faux flip again, ideal for the target mindset of self confident adolescence. Yet the vocabulary is rich. It presumes the understanding of the words like behemoth and adaptation, but gives enough context to add that word to young viewers vocabulary without getting pedantic. Great information in a rich visual context.
