Wild Kratts joins the adventures of Chris and Martin Kratt as they encounter incredible wild animals, combining science education with fun and adventure as the duo travels to animal habitats around the globe. Each adventure explores an age-appropriate science concept central to an animal's life and showcases a rarely seen wildlife moment, all wrapped up in engaging stories of adventure, mystery, rescue, and the Kratt brothers' brand of laugh-out-loud-comedy that kids love.
The educational goals of Wild Kratts are to:
1) Teach six to eight-year-old viewers natural history and age-appropriate science by building on their natural interest in animals.
2) Develop and strengthen basic skills of observation and investigation that children will use increasingly as they continue their study of science.
3) Build excitement in science that will remain with them throughout their lives.
Join the gang in an investigation of woodpecker holes. The team has been trying to track down the animal that has been making holes in trees. Aviva suspects a woodpecker, but Chris and Martin aren't so sure, especially after gathering more evidence.
Learn about animal classification with the Wild Kratts gang. Martin shows Koki how to identify birds of prey by their silhouettes in the sky.
The Kratt brothers explain the differences between American crocodiles and American alligators. They are different species with different physical characteristics.
Martin explains how to identify each type of raptor: falcons, hawks, owls, eagles, and vultures. They must free the raptors quickly from their chef nemesis!
Come learn about alligators and crocodiles with the Wild Kratts gang. See how an alligator's head helps it to hide in the water.
Chris and Koki examine the differences between crocodiles and alligators underwater. They find that differentiating between the species isn't as easy as they thought.
