Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas is an entertaining, informative, and educational series geared toward the age group of 13 to 16. To Summarize, the program in general focuses on Life Science with underlying science content standards addressed. The content, like the tone of the narration, is engaging, challenging, and avoids condescension. It manages to pack a great deal of educational information into a narrative theme that will hold young viewer's interest. Within the episode "30 MPH", (title chosen as the demarcation for exceptional animal speed), information is included on animal weight, animal behavior, animal social characteristics, and habitat adaptation in addition to the expected data on speed. Speed facts are grouped in meaningful ways. Speed champions in water, on land, and in the air are listed in addition to the overall winner (the Peregrine Falcon). Further, categories of two-legged, four-legged, and species are differentiated, as is human speed, which is effectively used as a point of comparison. The format supports the educational content. The editing style of quick cuts emphasizing highinterest visuals is well suited to the 13-16 year-old age group. The animal world presents a dazzling variety of fur, faces, body types, and movements and a welcome number of these are included. The visual elements alone present a wonderful tour of animal morphology and the emphasis on color, shapes, and faces will appropriately hold attention as the narrative delivers educational information. The vocabulary will stretch the knowledge base, and potentially new terms as "brachiating", "ungulates", are always introduced in context with supporting information ("...ungulates, or hoofed animals...") as well as visual articulation. This is a very effective way to deliver educational content.

Age of Target Child Audience from 13 years to 16 years
Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas is an entertaining, informative, and educational series geared toward the age group of 13 to 16. To Summarize, the program in general focuses on Life Science with underlying science content standards addressed. The content, like the tone of the narration, is engaging, challenging, and avoids condescension. It manages to pack a great deal of educational information into a narrative theme that will hold young viewer's interest. Within the episode "30 MPH", (title chosen as the demarcation for exceptional animal speed), information is included on animal weight, animal behavior, animal social characteristics, and habitat adaptation in addition to the expected data on speed. Speed facts are grouped in meaningful ways. Speed champions in water, on land, and in the air are listed in addition to the overall winner (the Peregrine Falcon). Further, categories of two-legged, four-legged, and species are differentiated, as is human speed, which is effectively used as a point of comparison. The format supports the educational content. The editing style of quick cuts emphasizing highinterest visuals is well suited to the 13-16 year-old age group. The animal world presents a dazzling variety of fur, faces, body types, and movements and a welcome number of these are included. The visual elements alone present a wonderful tour of animal morphology and the emphasis on color, shapes, and faces will appropriately hold attention as the narrative delivers educational information. The vocabulary will stretch the knowledge base, and potentially new terms as "brachiating", "ungulates", are always introduced in context with supporting information ("...ungulates, or hoofed animals...") as well as visual articulation. This is a very effective way to deliver educational content.
