Title:   " Playground Adventures "

Playground Adventures shows how a playground becomes an "outdoor classroom", a learning environment that encourages child-initiated, teacher-supported play activities to stimulate learning. Featuring a variety of playground examples -- including some with a limited budget using recycled materials -- the program discusses the role of play in the development of young children and the characteristics of a well-planned playground. The program gives specific ideas on how to plan and utilize a creative environment. The construction of a new playground in Gothenburg, Nebraska, is documented, illustrating how community involvement and creativity can result in an imaginative, child-centered outdoor classroom.
