Brief Description of the Site:
The Discovery Channel's web site for kids, this follows the television station's children's programming with facts, episode updates, games, and soundbites. Despite its commercial agenda, the information on the nature programming is appealing to youngsters, such as "Strange Science Webisodes" and "Chomp Challenge".

How to use the site:
The home page lists "Fansites" for web links that support its television programming but also has related games for kids. The "Explore by Subject" links to animations or at times, Discovery's home page, for further information. The site is regularly updated to coincide with its television programming, making it a site that one can revisit for new material.
