About The Walking Classroom:
The Walking Classroom is an innovative, easy to implement, research-proven program that enables students to get exercise while building core content knowledge. Students listen to kid-friendly educational podcasts on pre-loaded devices while walking. Podcasts incorporate health messages and character values. The Walking Classroom is a great tool for distance learning when students may not have reliable access to Internet.
The Walking Classroom is a national award-winning education program that provides students and teachers with an innovative way to get exercise without sacrificing instructional time. The nonprofit program’s “Walk, Listen, and Learn” methodology capitalizes on the favorable link between exercise and cognitive function.
Perfect for students in grades 3 through 8!
The program can be used for:
  • In-school instruction with physical distancing
  • Remote learning(with or without internet access)
  • Hybrid learning(in-school instruction with physical distancing AND remote learning)
Used as designed, The Walking Classroom naturally allows for physical distancing between students as they walk—either at school or at home.
How The Walking Classroom Program Works:
The Walking Classroom program is simple: Students take brisk 20-minute walks as a class while listening to the same custom-written, kid-friendly podcast that comes preloaded on their WalkKit (audio player) or via our new mobile app. Each podcast begins with a brief health literacy message and includes a character value woven throughout the narrative. The lesson plans and quizzes in the available Teacher’s Guide help educators effectively discuss and review the podcast material.
Aligned to state standards, the podcast topics are appropriate for students in grades 3–8. Podcasts topics include English language arts, social studies, science, and more. Our WalkKit audio players can be shared among classes and reused year after year. And, you now have the option of using our mobile app on both Android and Apple devices.
