As much as we might hate to admit it, it's a fact of life that most kids love TV. Although it's best to limit the amount your children watch, there's no reason to rule out television altogether. In fact, kids can really learn a lot from some shows. These five educational programs are available to Netflix streaming subscribers.

The Magic School Bus: Ms. Frizzle takes her class on one outrageous field trip after another. Kids will learn about all kinds of scientific concepts from this show, which is based on the hit book series by Joanna Cole.

Wild Kratts: The Kratt brothers, in both their live and animated forms, bring kids into the world of animals. All sorts of endangered and exotic species are featured.

Super Why!: Kids will explore the fundamentals of reading as they help the Super Readers find clues and solve problems. Mixed-up fairy tales add to the fun.

Mighty Machines: Watch huge vehicles and powerful machines at work in this live-action series, narrated by the hard-working machines themselves. Children will learn about the many jobs that heavy-duty equipment can handle.

Martha Speaks: Alphabet soup worked magic on Martha the dog, and now she can talk. Vocabulary-building is a focus of this show.

Television time doesn't have to mean zoning out in front of the screen. These shows will encourage your children to engage with the content as they explore new ideas and pick up on new concepts.
