Children in the Junkyard.
Haas, Malka
Childhood Education, v72 n6 p345-51 1996
Examines the role of playgrounds that use discarded items or "junk" as an integral part of kindergarten classes in an Israeli kibbutz. Suggests that play in the junkyard, by including the whole person--muscles and senses, emotion and intellect, individual growth and social interaction--can offer the experiential foundations on which children can build more abstract learning in the years to come.
