Playground Facilities and Equipment. ACSA School Management Digest, Series 1, Number 7. ERIC/CEM Research Analysis Series, Number 34.
Modern educators and playground designers are increasingly recognizing that play is a part, perhaps the decisive part, of the entire learning process. Theories of playground equipment design, planning the playground, financial considerations, and equipment suggestions are featured in this review. Examples of playgrounds include innovative multipurpose pilot projects and "adventure playgrounds." A brief section discusses playgrounds for handicapped children. Forty-four documents and journal articles, cited in the ERIC system and listed in the bibliography, were consulted for this review. (Author/MLF)
