Minute Earth Kids

With a focus on the planet and its organic life, this entirely animated channel addresses offbeat, niche mysteries like ‘how mushrooms make it rain.’ The narration is in basic vocabulary to ensure easy understanding. We think it's a perfect channel for extra-curious kids, who are always trying to figure out the more obscure workings of the world.

It's AumSum Time

With its simple and colourful cartoons, it brings the traditional sciences to life. The short videos tend to address some basic building block concepts in science, like what allows trees to take up water or other simply fun facts that answer slightly eccentric questions of the Mother Nature.
