Edubuntu is Ubuntu with education packages pre-installed. 
You could install any or all of the packages to most of the other Ubuntu flavors.
Here is a link to a further explaination to include the list of packages by age group, http://askubuntu.com/questions/153660/what-is-the-difference-between-edubuntu-and-ubuntu

Hi All,

I built a small PC for my nephew's kids (ages 3-7) to use yesterday.  Not
really knowing what version of Ubuntu is best for young kids,  I googled
and came up with edubuntu.  Got it installed and hope to give PC to kids
this week.  (I will partly disassemble the PC and teach 7 yr old how to
assemble a PC.)  What do you know about edubuntu?  Is there a better OS
choice for kids this age?  Thanks.
