Justin Time features a little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, providing him with an experience to help solve his problem when he returns home. Justin is accompanied by two imaginary friends throughout his adventures; Olive, a knowledgeable playmate, and Squidgy, the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Some examples of Justin's lessons involve learning that it takes focus to achieve success, our failures can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find an alternative way to achieve your goal. Justin promotes self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town encourages fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. In the imaginary setting of Lazy Town, characters' eating and fitness habits are linked to problem solving in their world. The lead character is Stephanie, a young girl who guides the audience through the story as she and her friends ("human" puppets) and her Uncle (Mayor Milford Meanswell) navigate life within Lazy Town. Robbie Rotten, the underground spy and influencer who personifies the ethos of Lazy Town, is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids have difficulty with Robbie Rotten, Sportacus, a gymnast/athlete prepared to answer any call for help, comes to the rescue from his home in a zeppelin-like aircraft that hovers over earth. The underlying themes of Lazy Town stress the importance of eating "sports candy" (aka fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On The Spot adopts a modified question and answer format familiar to broadcast network viewers, including the targeted age. The questions fall under curriculum core areas of knowledge in social studies, science, the arts, civics, and mathematics. The format allows for a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended, which is a serious asset. The integration of core curriculum areas is a traditional goal in education and while On The Spot doesn't support the deeper integration that would be done in a classroom, the energetic blend is a great example of taking curriculum out of their separate boxes and making them a uniform part of why knowledge can be important. On The Spot explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On The Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music and technology and then teaches them to answer.

On The Spot adopts a modified question and answer format familiar to broadcast network viewers, including the targeted age. The questions fall under curriculum core areas of knowledge in social studies, science, the arts, civics, and mathematics. The format allows for a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended, which is a serious asset. The integration of core curriculum areas is a traditional goal in education and while On The Spot doesn't support the deeper integration that would be done in a classroom, the energetic blend is a great example of taking curriculum out of their separate boxes and making them a uniform part of why knowledge can be important. On The Spot explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On The Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music and technology and then teaches them to answer.
