Listen to some Walking Classroom program samples below. Each Walking Classroom program includes over 100 pre-loaded podcasts that begin with a brief health literacy message and then transition to topics focused on science, social studies, and English language arts. The content in the programs directly aligns with either the 4th or 5th grade Common Core, but the topics are appropriate for all students in grades 3–8. Many schools and after-school programs incorporate their materials across grade levels.
