The Kratt Bros. endorse the scientific method

Kratt BrothersWild Kratts is a show that was developed to help interest kids in science.  Kids in America have generally shown a lack of interest and engagement with science as compared to children on an international level.  The show targets 6-8 year olds and helps to build on their natural interest in animals.

The show intentionally has a diverse cast of characters to reach a magnitude of audiences to further help a greater variety of children engage in the show. The Kratt Brothers love to research and explore the world around them.  They present their research in a fun and exciting way. Whether it’s revealing clips from whales that dwell in the deep sea or discovering why earthworms come out of the ground when it rains, count on these gents to stir your interest in the wild and unknown!

The National Science Education Standards (NSES) lays out the curriculum standards for science content. It is especially important for this age group to discover the scientific method, which includes asking questions, forming a hypothesis, making observations, and presenting results.  This inquiry-based approach is a central part of the story and the Kratt Brothers model it in each and every episode.  The Kratt Brothers also use this model to succeed, while the unsuccessful villains do not.  This inherently shows children how valuable it is to use critical thinking skills and the inquiry-based method not only in science, but also in life.
