Health Benefits and Health Awareness
My students and I love The Walking Classroom. I am a firm believer in the correlation between movement and learning. This program should be in every classroom.
– Jennifer Gruber, North Carolina
The program is great! Students REALLY took to it immediately, and engagement was way up. Thanks for including the health tips. I think that this is an area that is otherwise overlooked in general classroom curriculum/activities. Thank you!
– Robert Amses, California
Not only are my students learning more about academic subjects, but they are learning healthy habits as well.

Our students face many struggles in their lives and The Walking Classroom has allowed us to not only teach academic content, but the lifelong skills of being healthy and living a healthy lifestyle.

My students love this program. They look forward to our TWC sessions. It also aligns perfectly across our curriculum and content areas.
– Kasey Latshaw, Pennsylvania
The content of the podcasts is spot on and aligns wonderfully with the North Carolina standards and teaching objectives. The quality of the podcasts and ancillary resources make “Walking Classroom” user friendly for teachers . . . It has become an enhancement to my teaching toolkit.

The WalkKits have given us a chance to get our students outside and active, while still learning vital information in the curriculum.

Discussion and Engagement . . . check!
Since I have started using The Walking Classroom, students have become more engaged in the learning process and are more excited about coming to school. I look forward to continuing to use The Walking Classroom to expand our learning!
– Sarah Richardson, Virginia
The Walking Classroom equipment and materials have helped with increasing class discussion and also with the development of my students’ listening skills. They are listening with a purpose more attentively now in regular classroom activities — even when the devices are not being used.
– Carmichael Henry, North Carolina
My students are listening intently and having lively discussions about the podcasts when we return to class. After 24 years of teaching, I can truly say it’s one of my favorite programs.
– Susan Camarena, California
This program has really sparked excitement in many of my students that have a hard time concentrating and focusing sitting in the classroom. Using the podcasts helps give background knowledge of what we are learning, as well as building upon what we have learned already.
