The Values of Outdoor Play
Elkind, David
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n171 p6-8 Sep-Oct 2006
This article describes outdoor play as a solid foundation and a central vehicle of knowledge about the real world. Outdoor play is important to all age levels, but particularly in early childhood and the elementary years. Children's outdoor play is not a luxury. It is critical in children's ability to learn about the world, others, and themselves. It is through playful contact with that world that they create learning.
