The goal of each field trip to answer questions or learn many new things about the place the class visits. Each episode is a fact filled expedition to places as diverse as the solar system, the human body, or even inside weather systems. The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Frizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their own questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, a large lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from ages 4 to 9 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira, often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.

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 Wimzie's house and you'll never want to go home. It's the magical kind of daycare that leads to delightful adventures for the pre-school child. All of the characters are wild and wooly on the outside - but definitely human on the inside.After spending a half hour in this very special home away from home, no one will leave the world of Wimzie unchanged. It is the world where the real and the imaginary come together, where self esteem is the order of the day, where the emotions and the relationships of today's preschoolers, who are growing up to be ten in the year 2000, are on the top of the list of story material. Five year old Wimzie and her mother Graziella, an airline pilot, live in Yaya's house as does Rousso, Yaya's best friend - even if Yaya is at least one hundred years and fifty years old (and counting) and Russo is much more than a hundred years her younger. 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 humour throughout a storyline solidly crafted on socio-affective objectives. Music, songs, the art of discovery. Rhymes, magic, the sharing of secrets with friends. Storytime, word games, the acceptance of "your" way. This is what Wimzie brings into the viewers' home. A daycare full of little monsters - what could be more real? Conflict, difficulty, resolution, triumph. Laughter, tears, anger and joy. Wimzie is a world of enchantment.
