The Walking Detective™
With Student Instructions
The Walking Detective™ is a toolkit featuring Ghedi, a fictional ten year old Somali refugee who makes his home in Kansas City. His name means “a traveller” or “born during travel” in Somali and that’s what he does best. He thinks about walking and he talks about walking. He walks and rides his bike to school everyday.
With The Walking Detective™ Student Instructions, kids can conduct walking audits around their homes to find clues and collect evidence to show how walkable their communities are. They can build a case report to show city officials what things are working well and what things need to be improved.
