Sitting in class all day can get “kind of boring,” said 10-year-old Adrianna Moreno.
“You want to look around at stuff, and then the teacher tells you to pay attention, even though you’re still listening,” said Adrianna, a fourth-grader at Mountainside Elementary School in Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8.
That’s not an issue during “The Walking Classroom,” an idea from a national nonprofit organization that takes kids outside for a podcast lesson.
“It’s great,” Adrianna said. “You can look and listen at the same time.”
