We explored two playgrounds on two different days. The first playground is a modern looking playground made up of one big play unit in our neighborhood. We counted the things that could get you high in the air and the things that you could play under. Jam tested the things he could climb and the slides.
Back at our house we discussed the differences, his likes, and dislikes, and at the end of the day he became a playground designer.
Visit two different playgrounds and discuss their differences.
Case study #6: Design your playground. Download the playground critique and use your experience from the two playgrounds to design and draw your own.
Investigate with Jam is an activity blog in the
Radicle Roots Series. Our mission is to get out and explore our environment.
