  • The Walking Classroom is a teacher-initiated, in-school fitness and obesity intervention that improves health literacy and builds core content knowledge while addressing different learning styles.

  • Demonstrated results
    The Walking Classroom positively affects:
    check Academic achievement by addressing different learning styles
    check Attitudes toward physical activity & lifestyle habits
    check Overall fitness & activity levels
    check Health literacy

  • Practical, productive, fun
    Students listen to entertaining and educational standards-aligned podcasts while they walk. Different learning styles are addressed, and all students return to the classroom in brighter moods with oxygenated brains that are better able to focus.

  • Evidence-based
    Research consistently shows a direct positive correlation between a child's physical activity and cognitive function. With The Walking Classroom, students are active learners!
