Students return from walks in better moods, more focused, and more likely to engage in post-walk discussions!
Educators frequently report that they see better student engagement and that students are motivated to learn in the classroom after walking, listening, and learning with a Walking Classroom podcast. Physical activity not only helps kids stay healthy and strong, but it can also contribute to higher test scores, improved attendance, better behavior in class, better engagement and motivation, and a lifetime of healthy habits.
Great for building student engagement while physically distanced in class, learning remotely at home, or in hybrid learning environments.
Used as designed, the program naturally allows for physical distancing between students as they walk—both at school and at home.
“The program is great! Students REALLY took to it immediately, and student engagement was way up. Thank you!” — Robert Amses, teacher, CA
