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 easily fits into physically distanced learning, remote learning at home, or hybrid learning environments.
Used as designed, the program naturally allows for physical distancing between students as they walk—at school, during out-of-school time, and at home.
The Walking Classroom for out-of-school time
The Walking Classroom program is extremely easy to implement in afterschool programs, especially with our new mobile app!
