Name of Artifact:

Playground Project

Date:

July 19, 2016

Course:

EDUC 240: Physical & Health Education for Elementary Teachers

Brief Description:

In this assignment we are asked to visit two playground sites. Our sites are specifically at apartment complexes. We must compares and contrast the two sites while evaluating the features of each. Additionally, we discuss the safety and maintenance of each site.

Rationale:

To document our understanding of InTASC Standard #1, we recognize this assignment can be used to evaluate ways playgrounds aid in the development of children, both physically and socially. Activities can be modified with the growth and abilities of the children which allows us as teachers the opportunity to scaffold to the next area of development as the child progresses. Slide3
