Sizing Down the Playground

Using a variety of skills including math, orienteering, and art, Grade 4 students replicated the Middle School playground structures! First, students measured the outdoor structures and used these dimensions to scale down the entire project so that 4 feet = 1 inch. Then, breaking into smaller groups, students began to build the different elements they use outdoors each day at recess including the swings, basketball court, pond, and more! Finally, students used a compass to identify which direction was North so they could more accurately orient their pieces on the 3D map and create a key so visitors could fully enjoy and understand this project! We can’t wait to see how the final project comes together!
