Walkabouts: Integrate Movement in Math, Language and Literacy

August 5, 2016

How active are your students during the school day? Walkabouts are simple-to-use, cost-effective online lessons that integrate movement into subjects like math, language and literacy. With Walkabouts by ActivEd, preK through 2nd grade students learn while moving. This online platform includes standards-based math and English Language Arts lessons.

Integrate Movement in the Classroom

The Walkabouts active learning platform lets teachers…

  • Go beyond brain breaks by integrating movement into lessons. Teachers are able to see the benefits of physical activity without reducing instruction time.
  • Get students out of their chairs to learn. The lessons are guided by characters Jax and Gia who introduce new concepts, or help students review old concepts.
  • Use at-a-glance assessment. With movement integrated in a meaningful way, it is certainly easy for teachers to survey the room and see which students understand the lesson, and which need help.
  • Create fun, new lessons in just four clicks. Teachers can search by state and national standards, to easily find the content relevant to their classrooms regardless of their content area.
  • Make homework fun. All students get access to Walkabouts at home, making homework active and informative.
