Kids get fresh air and exercise while reinforcing academic content, health literacy, and character values
Studies show that active kids do better in school. Physical activity in afterschool (or out-of-school time) not only helps kids stay healthy and strong, but it can also contribute to higher test scores, improved attendance, better behavior, enhanced leadership skills, and a lifetime of healthy habits.
The Walking Classroom for out-of-school time
The program is simple to implement and easily fits into classrooms, afterschool programs, summer camps, homeschool, and more, especially with our mobile app!
