Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Are We There Yet? World Adventure is a global adventure series for kids by kids, hosted by very real brother and sister duos. Through journal entries, crayon-drawn travel logs, on-location kid chatter, and voice narration the hosts explore a world of playground-inspired adventures as they celebrate familiar childhood themes and experiences in some truly unfamiliar locations across the globe. For ages 4-8, the series has several educational and informational goals: (1) to teach basic geography and historical context of well-known world sights (2) to develop appreciation for and encourage reflection on similarities and differences between cultures (3) to reinforce the notion that we are all part of one big world, no matter how far away we are and (4) to inspire a sense of world exploration and adventure. The kid hosts bring viewers along on their unscripted adventures that embrace our cultural similarities and delight in our differences. In each episode our hosts visit a manmade or natural wonder, have an adventure involving animals, and learn about a new culture by visiting with local kids from different countries around the world.
