LET’S GO LUNA! is the newest addition to PBS KIDS’ line up of programs dedicated to teaching and inspiring our youngest viewers. As The Wall Street Journal reports today in an article entitled In ‘Let’s Go Luna,’ PBS Offers a Global Message, “the new children’s TV series emphasizes appreciation for other cultures . . . ”
Research shows that young children have limited exposure to social studies concepts in school, and LET’S GO LUNA! helps address this gap by encouraging kids ages 4-7 to explore and appreciate cultures worldwide and build global citizenship and social skills. While LETS GO LUNA! launches tomorrow, November 21, PBS LearningMedia already offers episodes and discussion questions that are appropriate for teachers and parents. PBS Learning Media will also offer LET’S GO LUNA! classroom-ready materials, including video excerpts, games, tips and printable activities.
