Peep and the Big Wide World

The people responsible for bringing us Martha Speaks have done it again! Another educational and very fun kids' program Peep and the Big Wide World.

What is Peep? Narrated by comedienne and mother of two Joan Cusack, Peep is an Emmy award-winning series that teaches preschoolers about science through the adventures of Peep, a newly hatched chick, Chirp, a smart and sassy robin, and Quack, an irascible, endearing duck. Each half-hour episode contains two animated stories highlighting specific science or math concepts, plus two live-action segments of real kids exploring science and math in everyday places. To quote Joan “I’ve learned that just because you’re four or five years old and still using a sippy cup doesn’t mean you’re not a scientist… I love this show!”

Me too, Joan! And TOF and his best buds love it as much as I do.

Here are some awesome everyday science activities from the website that you can do with kids while it’s still Summer:

  • Bathtub Boats – Ahoy Matey! Make some boats for the bathtub and see what floats.
  • Making Parachutes – Who doesn’t love parachutes? Not us. Here’s how to make one!
Keep kids excited about science by checking out Peep, Quack, and Chirp as they learn science every Sunday at 6 AM on WTTW. Peep also is available in Spanish on V-ME. If not in the Chicagoland area, please check your local listings for show time.
