Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pirates Adventures in Art is an exciting and colorful animated series likely to appeal to 4 to 7 year olds. The format of the series is basically the same from episode to episode: the pirates uncover a new art technique, the evil queen finds out where they are and sends her soldiers to steal the encyclopedia, the pirates use their newly learned art technique to foil the evil plan. The series is clear in its presentation of the primary lesson (the value of visual art), the lesson is repeated and well incorporated into the storyline, engaging to young viewers, and important to a child's development.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Doki offers fun characters each with their own strengths and weaknesses (therefore offering a broad representation of possible at-home-viewers). The team is supportive of one another and the "world" of Doki and its characters reflects the media landscape of today's child. Although the most supportive programming involves the audience through presentation of material in a way that demands intellectual interaction on the part of the viewer (i.e., encouraging the viewer to assist on screen characters to solve problems), and this series might benefit from this type of "interaction," Doki does offer enthusiastic characters, real questions, and an "arguably" realist presentation of discovery. Combined, these elements will keep children engaged and support their learning.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Set in medieval times, Jane and the Dragon is an animated show based on Martin Baynton's best selling book about a middle class medieval girl named Jane. Jane is raised in the Royal Court as a Knight in Training after she demonstrates her courage by leaving the castle to conquer the local dragon. The giant green Dragon, whose sense of humor exceeds his ferocity, instead becomes Jane's best friend and a part of her castle community. In each episode, Jane encounters a challenge that tests her problem solving skills and requires her to demonstrate her strength of character as a Knight of the King's Guard. Sometimes Jane learns a moral lesson, and other times she uses her analytical ability to illustrate how a problem can be made less complicated and easily solved.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Dive Olly Dive offers a collection of boy and girl characters each with their own unique characteristics and strengths. Skid, although something of a bully, comes around in each episode and is never cruel. The team is supportive of one another and lessons of predicting, considering and discovering are cleverly interwoven into an entertaining storyline. Although the series is standard in terms of story telling, that is, it does not incorporate some of the elements that we know extend a series' power in terms of teaching, Dive Olly Dive offers relatable characters and episodes that are clearly created with the intention of supporting a child's learning. In particular this series supports a child's social development and problem solving skills.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Look Kool is a 30 minute program designed for children 6 to 9. On every episode, the male host, Hamza, interacts with an animated robot cat, a historical guest (played by Hamza in costume), children, and other animated creatures. The basic premise of the show is the idea that math is everywhere and each episode includes real children who help Hamza solve mathematical or scientific curiosities. Look Kool works hard to highlight for learners the link between the lesson and real life in order to activate and keep the children's interest. Live action children in real world settings put the lesson of the episode into action by seeking its value within everyday life. Look Kool is a highly educational program and speaks to the curious minds and active imaginations of elementary age kids and encourages the transfer of knowledge out into one's everyday life.
