Today we completed our design tasks! We have submitted our ideas to the landscape architects and are excited to see the final product! Thank you, Eagle Crest Garden Design Leaders for your outstanding work!
Here are descriptions of our ideas:
My playground feature is a maze. This feature will be made from recycled tires. The insides will be tall(4 tires tall), and the outsides will be shorter(1 tire tall), so kids can climb over it to get out at the end of recess. We need this feature because many people like mazes. This feature will be used by everyone so that people can race each other if they want or so people can just talk in the maze. ~Aayush
My playground feature is a greenhouse.This feature will be used for keeping plants safe from dying in cold.The greenhouse will also make it easier to find all the plants instead of walking 10 feet to get to the next plant.This is why we need a greenhouse. ~Bradford
My playground feature is a Tree House. My playground feature will be used for sliding, climbing, sitting, and be able to look out.This playground feature will be made out of wood, fences, plastic for slides, ladders (wood). This playground feature will be used by anyone that is not afraid of heights. ~Joshua
My playground feature is a garden.This playground feature will be used for food, prettiness, and Happiness.We need this feature because it can teach kids how to take care of plants.This feature will be made of wood.This feature will be used by kids and grown-ups. ~Molly
Our playground feature is a buddy bench. This feature will be used for people that have no friends to play with. So you sit, then someone will come over and ask you if you want to play with them, so you can play with them. We need this feature so that people can make new friends. This feature will be made from wood and will be painted. ~Idea by Presley, written by Aayush
My playground feature is a outdoor classroom! This outdoor classroom will be used for learning when you have fresh air. This outdoor classroom will be used by teachers, and students. This outdoor classroom will include rocks, benches, a whiteboard, platform, and it will have walls but only walls no ceilings. ~Sophie
My playground feature is the leadership wall with handprints. This playground feature will let people admire the wall of handprints. We need this feature because some kids like finding their handprint and playing I spy. That is why I think we should have a leadership wall. ~Story
My playground feature is the play structure and this is why we need it. The play structure will be used for many things like games and activities. We need this feature because everyone would love it with a zip line, a rock wall and a mini track. This feature will be used by lots of different people because of the zipline and rock wall. ~Sydney
Today we created a list of schoolyard items that we found the most in other students’ drawings, or that we thought were important to include in our design. Then we drew and wrote about the schoolyard features.
