You can install Debian on a powerpc.  Go with testing.  Install the 
Desktop profile.  When you log in, selecting KDE as your window manager, 
you will have a decently stocked edutainment menu.  "Apt-cache search" 
for any other programs that you want, or just type "apt-cache search 
education" and pick away.  I have used Debian on the ppc for years; you 
won't be disappointed.
