At Anderson Elementary, we use The Walking Classroom with our students during our Wellness Specials time. We are able to reach 260 students in a week doing The Walking Classroom through our Wellness Class. Our students are enthusiastic about using the Walking Classroom, and they request it frequently. We enjoy our outside time walking in the neighborhood, but on rainy days, we also have fun walking throughout the school.
The students’ favorite podcasts have been the ones about the human body’s slimy shields, the Constitution, and the circulatory system. The lessons presented by the podcasts are not only enjoyable for the students; they also support their core subject areas. In fact, our fourth grade students mentioned just how much their listening to The Walking Classroom helped them with a test that they had on the Constitution.
Many thanks to the donor who made this possible for our students!
