Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Zoo Clues will keep viewers engaged with the nearly infinite visual richness, animal characteristics, and wild range of animal behaviors. Beyond basic engagement, the series 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 program's clever narration links disparate information together in a way that always makes clear what viewers see is real, natural and relates to their own life in the real world. This program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On the Spot taps knowledge across a variety of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals hanging out in the mall who are in or near the target age range. There are three fundamental benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Finally, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success such as self-esteem. Answers to the questions will be given by people of diverse ethnicities and ages, and by both genders - not by stereotypical "Smart people." This is essential because it teaches that anyone can own the information. This program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Come spend a day in the life with the monsters at Wimzies house and you will never want to go home. It is the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yayas house. Graziella is more than ecstatic to have found a warm and comfortable home as well as a loving environment for her daughter, Wimzie, while she is off on her somewhat unorthodox work schedule flying around the world. It is within this setting that we meet Jonas, Archibald, Loulou, Horace, and Azuline as they work out the relationships that grow out of being together every day, of growing up just a little bit every day. They learn not only about themselves but also about the world outside the door. Music, nature, art and fun are woven with a touch of humor throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Story time, word games, and the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. This program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas matches the evolved visual intelligence of the young audience by building content with short clips and weaving them together in a narrative that keep a viewer engaged with a compelling narrative overview. The animal kingdom has an innate richness of color, form and motion - this series is built from that richness. The thread that links the clips together is the connection between the differing members of the animal kingdom - including our own species. In a compelling blend, animal examples are pulled from both common experience (horse, cat), and exotic animals like the clouded leopard or the red panda. As the nature of animals is explored, the content and clarity creates a program of exceptional education value. This program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas matches the evolved visual intelligence of the young audience by building content with short clips and weaving them together in a narrative that keep a viewer engaged with a compelling narrative overview. The animal kingdom has an innate richness of color, form and motion - this series is built from that richness. The thread that links the clips together is the connection between the differing members of the animal kingdom - including our own species. In a compelling blend, animal examples are pulled from both common experience (horse, cat), and exotic animals like the clouded leopard or the red panda. As the nature of animals is explored, the content and clarity creates a program of exceptional education value. This program is specifically designed to further the educational and informational needs of children, has educating and informing children as a significant purpose, and otherwise meets the definition of Core Programming as specified in the Commission's rules.

The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals hanging out in the mall who are in or near the target age range. There are three fundamental benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval.
