Primary Playgrounds

Kindergarteners and first graders had a blast designing their ideal playgrounds.  Starting with an elevated fort, they added bridges, tunnels, ladders, slides, swings, climbing walls and more.  Trays of primary colored squares, rectangles and thin strips were shared at each table.
