Twice a week, our class walked on the trail right behind the school. We listened to podcasts that matched with our science and social studies topics. The students really enjoyed being able to take a walk after lunch and learn new information! When we got back to the classroom, the students shared the fun facts they learned.
The best part was hearing the excitement in my students’ voices as they took turns participating in our discussions about the various podcast topics. Throughout the week, I had quite a few students asking when we could walk again!
