With traditional education instruction rooted in desk-sitting and blackboard-writing, teachers today are constantly innovating to reach students where they are, and how they learn best. In a classroom full of visual learners, auditory learners, and kinesthetic learners, educators have found creative ways to help students learn through viewing, hearing, and doing.
Enter - the sensory path for schools.
Using movement and direction-following at its core, the sensory path is designed to help students focus and remain engaged through a series of guided movements depicted on the floor or walls of a learning environment, where they learn valuable skills or curriculum in the process. It can be as simple as harnessing a child's bounding energy or as involved as learning science and math concepts, but no matter what the focus, it brings health of the mind and body into the student's learning.
