The Walking Classroom

Provided by The Walking Classroom Institute

The Walking Classroom is an award-winning, nationally recognized, in-school fitness initiative and obesity intervention that improves health literacy and builds core content knowledge while addressing different learning styles. The method is quite simple: students take brisk 20-minute walks (preferably outside) while listening to specially written and recorded content which is aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Detailed lesson plans contain defined objectives, discussion questions, and comprehension quizzes for each educational podcast, so that when students return from their walk, the content can be effectively reviewed and synthesized.

This sampler includes audio files, lesson plans, and quizzes for ten lessons from The Walking Classroom.
