How do the carts function at the middle and high school level?
- This is not a program, but a teaching tool for educators, and learning tool for students.
- Equipment allows teachers to integrate academics with physical movements to help students anchor learning.
- Educators can also use the cart activities without academics, for quick purposeful movement activities that prepare the brain to learn throughout the day!
- Portability means cart can be shared between classrooms, and adapted to fit various content areas within the subject.
Why are purposeful movement activities important?
Neuroscience shows the relationship between the brain and body plays a critical role in the student's ability to learn. Research shows, practicing specific movements, can strengthen these connections and improve reading, writing, memory tasks, & allow students to absorb & retain information more efficiently.
ABL Classroom carts are a budget friendly and efficient way to implement Action Based Learning Strategies to reach more students to increase activity throughout the school day and create an active school culture.
