Playground Facilities for Rural and Small Elementary Schools. Educational Administration, Monograph No. 4.
Cornacchia, Harold J.; Nixon, John E.
The objectives, organization, and instructional requirements for playground equipment, and its place in the educational program of rural and smaller elementary schools, are translated into actual construction and operational terms for architects, school planners, and builders. The need for larger elementary school sites is demonstrated in specific terms through the presentation of actual space requirements of various play areas needed for an adequate physical education and recreation program in schools of different sizes. Subject headings include--(1) the importance of adequate playgrounds in small elementary schools, (2) the characteristics of an adequate school playground, (3) a desirable education program for elementary schools, and (4) playground requirements for elementary schools, divided into 1-2, 3-4, and 5-8 teacher schools.
