Kids walk while listening to fun, standards-aligned educational podcasts!
Students return from walks in better moods, more focused, and more likely to engage in post-walk discussions! In addition to the obvious health benefits of walking, educators frequently report that their students are more engaged and motivated in the classroom. 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. Listening to these educational podcasts for kids are often the highlight of a student’s day.
Great for physically distanced in-class learning, remote learning at home, or hybrid learning environments.
Used as designed, the program naturally allows for physical distancing between students as they walk—both at school and at home.
