Walk, Listen and Learn! The Walking Classroom is an innovative, easy to implement, research-proven nonprofit program that enables students to get exercise while building core content knowledge. Teachers choose which standards aligned, kid-friendly educational podcast that students listen to while walking. Each podcast also incorporates a health literacy message and character value, and walking while learning is a great way to engage different learning styles.
More than 150 podcasts on history, science, language arts, and more ensure that students in grades 3-8 can use the program throughout the entire school year. Each “WalkKit” audio device is ready to use right out of the box, and lesson plans and comprehension quizzes help educators effectively discuss and review the podcast material. An app version is also available.
The screen-free program works great in remote or hybrid learning environments. Best of all, kids just think it’s fun.
