Get Moving While Staying Informed: Introducing Newsela PE!

The Newsela Team
Apr 1, 2024

We're excited to announce the launch of our newest knowledge, skill-building, and muscle-toning product: Newsela PE. Yes, you read that right! We’re branching out into gym class, bringing educators a revolutionary way to help their students get fit while staying informed.

What is Newsela PE?

What exactly is Newsela PE? This new product combines the rush of 60 minutes of activity students need each day to stay healthy with content-rich instruction. With Newsela PE, students can break a sweat while expanding their minds. It's the perfect fusion of physical activity and cognitive engagement.

How does Newsela PE work?

Instead of traditional gym classes filled with repetitive exercises and grueling Presidential Fitness Challenge requirements, Newsela PE pairs dynamic movements with content from informative articles. From cardio routines based on news stories about Olympic runners to strength training exercises tied to folktales, every workout challenges both students’ bodies and their minds.

What are Newsela PE’s key features?

With Newsela PE, you'll have access to a wide range of curated workouts and content tailored to five different fitness levels and reading levels, all across topics that fit your students’ interests. Whether your students are beginner athletes looking to get started or seasoned fitness experts craving a new challenge, there's something for everyone!

And if the workouts aren’t enough, did we mention the interactive quizzes and discussion opportunities? After each exercise session, you can test your students’ knowledge and have them engage in stimulating conversations to provide diverse perspectives on the content they read and the workouts they completed. These assessment options are a fun and interactive way to deepen students’ understanding of the world around them while they pick things up and put them back down.

To make the Newsela PE experience even more immersive, stay tuned for our upcoming product update, where we'll introduce virtual reality workouts. Have students put on a VR headset and transport themselves to exotic locations around the globe to embark on exhilarating fitness adventures. From scaling Mount Everest to exploring the depths of the ocean, there are endless settings for students to complete their workouts with Newsela PE VR.
