The idea behind the research-proven Walking Classroom program is simple: Students a take brisk 20-minute walk while listening to custom-written, kid-friendly educational podcasts. Each podcast begins with a brief health literacy message and includes a character value woven throughout the narrative to support social and emotional learning. Lesson plans and quizzes are available to help educators effectively discuss and review the podcast material.
