Oct 21, 2020

Any time can be learning time when you are watching Iowa PBS! A daily, 5-hour At-Home Learning Service is available on Iowa PBS WORLD .3 for students in grades 6-12 statewide. Between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays, Iowa PBS WORLD .3 will offer programs on science, history and English language arts. Each week we will also provide a guide that also includes a link to related resources and activities to continue the learning after the show. Please note, schedules are subject to changes. Visit our schedule page for the latest information.

Want other ways for you and your family to connect with the programs? Try out these grade level discussion cards and reflection questions. Each is targeted for different age and grade ranges and allows you and your family to extend the learning from your favorite Iowa PBS programs. These make it to talk about what you've learned!

PBS KIDS Discussion Cards: Cut up the cards and shuffle. After you’ve watched a PBS KIDS program on Iowa PBS, choose 1-2 cards to talk about with your child.

Reflection Questions (grades 4-12): After watching an Iowa PBS program, take a moment to reflect on your learning from the PBS episode or program you just watched by answering these reflection questions.
