GoNoodle

What’s It Like? GoNoodle is a series of web-based videos, games, and activities focused on introducing short bursts of physical exercise in the classroom. For young children who need to burn up energy to concentrate on learning, this is a simple solution. The site is meant to be used for physical activity in five- to 10-minute bursts, particularly during transition periods.

Price: Free/subscription

Grades: K-5

Pros: Videos and games are silly enough to get students’ moving, and the benefits of “brain breaks” are well documented.

Cons: This burst of exercise requires a steady internet connection; otherwise you’ll experience some choppy videos.

Bottom line: In a genre of its own, GoNoodle is a ready-to-go and classroom-friendly exercise program that challenges students to get moving.
