Key Features

  • Free. Any teacher, anywhere, can create a free GoNoodle account and start using movement activities right away.

  • Research-based Activities. Using exercise science and cutting-edge research, all of GoNoodle’s activities are healthy for the body, engaging for the attention, and beneficial to the brain in specific ways.

  • Fast. Transition from listless to engaged in minutes. GoNoodle takes no time to setup, has content of a variety of lengths (from 1 minute to 20 minutes), and just requires you to press play.

  • Designed for Long-Term Engagement. GoNoodle makes earning minutes of healthy activity a game that your kids play together. Motivate kids to stay active. Each class chooses a Champ - a virtual mascot - who grows as the class earns the minutes needed to advance to the next level. Reward them for engagement by helping them grow their Champ.

  • Multiple Classes. For teachers who see multiple groups of kids each day, GoNoodle can be easily set up so that each class has their own game progress, Champ, and rewards.
