What are Walkabouts?

Walkabouts are more than brain breaks! These web-based lessons activate pre-K through 2nd grade content with fun, standards-based movement. This curriculum supplement integrates language arts, math, and reading content with real exercises, making active learning easy — all with no special equipment, training, or extra space needed!

A recent study showed that active kids are 20% more likely
than their sedentary peers to earn an A in math or language arts.

Research-Backed & Evidence-Based

Across the country, students are moving less and less. But recent research (from experts including our founder, Dr. Julian Reed) offers some good news: Active children aren’t just healthier, they learn better. Those benefits only increase with kinesthetic learning and integrated brain exercises!

Activate Curriculum Both in and Out of Class

Walkabouts do what we all talk about in parent-teacher conferences: They engage each and every student! At Walkabouts, we aren’t just education and technology experts, we’re also parents — and we know that kids learn more, are more engaged, and are healthier when they are active both in and out of the classroom.
