The Kids Are Outside

To compensate for posting a rather dystopic video about the future of teaching a couple of weeks ago, I am sharing Get Outside and Move (below), which was co-produced by the National Park Service and Third Eye. I learned about the video from Jason, a Third Eye volunteer and recent BSU graduate who uses the arts to do  creative and important work with youth in New Bedford.

The video has gotten the attention of Michelle Obama's Let's Move program, which advocates fitness through better connections to food and exercise. The video has the added attraction of revealing the students' great sense of pride in their community -- from its history and architecture to the beautiful lands and waters that surround New Bedford.
