An Instructional Playground for the Handicapped Using Tires as Inexpensive Playground Equipment: Activity and Construction Manual.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Special Education Instructional Materials Center.
The manual explains how special education students in an occupational program used tires to construct an inexpensive instructional playground for handicapped elementary school pupils. Presented in two sections with accompanying pictures or diagrams are activity ideas for using the tires in a variety of configurations (Part 1) and construction and installation instructions (Part 2) both within the school shop setting and at the playground site. Listed in a brief introductory section are the following project benefits: students' satisfaction, increased interaction between special education and physical education staff members and between students in special and regular classes, equipment safety, and low cost (under $400) of constructing the playground.
