Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas 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. The narration is well informed and unobtrusive, allowing for the inevitable learning that comes from wonder and delight. This series also presents in a non-exploitive way views of animal behavior and physiology that traditional pedagogical programming might not include. The ability for young people to observe, wonder, and compare is one of the strengths of the series. (airs on primary digital station at this time)
