The Walking Classroom is a teacher-initiated, in-school fitness and obesity intervention that improves health literacy and builds core content knowledge while addressing different learning styles.
The Walking Classroom positively affects:
Academic achievement by addressing different learning styles
Attitudes toward physical activity & lifestyle habits
Overall fitness & activity levels
Practical, productive, fun
Students listen to entertaining and educational standards-aligned podcasts while they walk. Different learning styles are addressed, and all students return to the classroom in brighter moods with oxygenated brains that are better able to focus.
Research consistently shows a direct positive correlation between a child's physical activity and cognitive function. With The Walking Classroom, students are active learners!
