Kids in Motion is part of WSKG Public Media’s Working on Wellness project. WSKG and partners Binghamton City School District, Broome-Tioga BOCES and the Broome County Health Department created lessons and media clips based upon Movement in the Classroom Physical Education curriculum.

These video segments range in length from five to fifteen minutes demonstrating simple yet meaningful movement activities that are easily replicable in the classroom, after school or home setting.

For more information, download our Kids In Motion flyer

This collection includes over 50 videos and lessons covering a wide variety of curriculum including, Math, English Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, The Arts and World Languages. These videos and lessons are geared towards grades Kindergarten through 5th.

The Binghamton University Center for Applied Community Research and Development evaluated implementation of Kids in Motion media in K-5 classrooms, assessing if physical activity increased during the school day in classrooms utilizing Kids In Motion media segments.  Binghamton University compared classrooms using Kids In Motion videos versus non-video classrooms to assess effectiveness of using movement and media in the classroom. Research shows on average, classrooms that implemented Kids In Motion videos increased student movement by 270%.
