The Walking Classroom Institute
About this Hero
The problems of childhood inactivity, obesity, and low student performance are all addressed by The Walking Classroom’s active learning program. The program reaches >10,000 kids each year and encourages healthy lifestyle choices through its use of regular exercise and presentation of health messages before every podcast. By walking while learning core curriculum and health messages (like the importance of exercise, healthy calories, hydration, bullying, etc.), students increase their health awareness and healthy choices while improving their classroom engagement and academic outcomes.
