How well-kept are playgrounds in your neighborhood or school? Encourage children and adults to help erase playground clutter.
With an adult accompanying the class during recess, students survey the playground at their school (or go with a parent to a neighborhood playground). What kinds of clutter do you see? Who is responsible for the playground and its upkeep? As the class discusses these questions, document responses on a classroom white board using Crayola Dry Erase Markers.
Working in small groups, students develop plans to help keep the playground clean and safe. On white paper, use Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to make a list of recommendations. If children need to correct spellings, just erase. Check with the people responsible for the playground to make decisions about how you will proceed with implementing recommendations.
Student action plans get put into action. One part of each plan might be to publicize a Campaign for Clean Playgrounds. Students might want to make posters that encourage people to help. Use Crayola Washable Markers and Crayola Twistables Crayons on white paper to draw beautiful playgrounds.
Encourage the use of action words such as "Pick up your trash."
Remind students to make their posters colorful by adding a bold border to be noticed wherever it is displayed. Send the message to classmates and community that safe playgrounds are important!
