Watch and learn about how elementary school students feel about their walk to school and why they are encouraging their peers to try it.

More Info: Over the past 20 years, in Canada and all over the world, there has been a steady decline in active travel to/from school (walking, biking, etc). Students who could be using active ways are instead getting a ride in the family vehicle, and missing out on opportunities for exercise, fresh air, and social time with friends and family.

Check out the Teacher's Guide for classrooms that was created to accompany this video: http://tiny.cc/SIUTeachersGuide

STEPPING it UP is a two-part motivational video about the benefits of active travel to school. Watch the other part of the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XUysl...
