“Wild Kratts Backyard Aventures Week” premieres April 2-6

 Wild Kratts logo

Kangaroos, Dracos (flying lizards) and other critters join brothers Chris and Martin Kratt every weekday on “Wild Kratts” to teach our little ones about science in such a fun, cool way.  This mama has learned a few things too – it’s easy to get sucked in to this show – sort of like a “Globetrekker” with animals and fun facts.  Or a “Rick Steve’s Europe”, just animated with a few creatures thrown in for fun.  Makes me want to travel.  Makes my kids excited about science.  Win, win.  And no, we’ll stick to turtles and fish for now – maybe the elephant when you are a little older. 

Check out a special week of shows the first week of April:

“Backyard Adventures Week” premieres on AETN April 2-6 at 4 p.m.:
April 2: Mystery of the Squirmy Wormy 
April 3: Voyage of the Butterflier XT
April 4: Bass Class 
April 5: The Blue and the Gray 
April 6: Flight of the Pollinators – NEW!

About the show:
Animals can take you anywhere in science! Creature teachers Chris and Martin Kratt will take 6- to 8-year olds and their families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures in WILD KRATTS. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning Kratts’ Creatures and Emmy-winning Zoboomafoo, into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and showcase key science concepts along the way. 

From elephants using physics to suck gallons of water with their trunks to a fleet of peregrine falcons that harness the force of gravity to speed through the air, each of the 40 half-hour episodes of WILD KRATTS presents age-appropriate science inspired by the natural abilities of the animals that the Kratt brothers – and young viewers – meet. 

TUNE IN:  "Wild Kratts" airs weekdays on AETN at 4 p.m.
