Hardscape Playgrounds Into Outdoor Classrooms

Environmental & Science Education

The most recent announcement from Defending the Early Years (DEY) includes a story/report about the outcomes of a grant DEY gave to the Valley of the Sun Chapter of the Arizona AEYC (Association for the Education of Young Children).

It involved "flipping" three playgrounds, transforming these "hardscape playgrounds into outdoor classrooms, including outdoor libraries, unique gardens, and music centers."

Here is a description of the project with photographs and a short video (3 m 33 s).
