The Little Animals Activity Centre from BBC Schools, an educational program of the British broadcasting giant, is "a fun way for 4-8 year olds to learn and play at home." Animal graphics are used as links to various activities that engage children in reading, spelling, art, and mathematics. Mathematics lessons in addition and subtraction are led by Count Hoot, an owl. The interactive games allow kids to solve simple number problems, with immediate feedback on their answers and options to move up to more advanced levels. To encourage quick thinking and practice in basic math skills, the games are timed. Puzzlesnuff, the Hedgehog, hosts another section where children have a chance to create postcards, solve riddles, and contribute their own riddles via email. These lessons help children learn to communicate in different ways. The Teachers and Parents section describes some of the other features on the website and explains the objectives of the curriculum. The suggested lesson plan for mathematics is a bingo game, for which worksheets are available to print and use.
