Kids In Motion

As part of Working on Wellness, WSKG is partnering with the Binghamton City School District to create media clips based upon existing 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 or home setting and are aligned with New York State Standards. For more information, download our Kids in Motion flier.  Visit WSKG's Kids In Motion Collection on PBS Learning Media for lesson plans.


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 vs. 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%.
