Wow Juliet, you are amazing! I would have never thought up those activities as quickly as you did, what a success.

Even though I work with preschoolers who love to be outside, I also believe all ages of children do, IF their teacher can make it fun and enjoy nature.

I wish I could have seen you work with these kids in action!!

Wow! Are those markings on the playground area permanently? I bet teachers would be more willing to be out there if they had those as "resources". In the United States, no one seems to care much about kids being outside (sadly). I do remember doing the same map activity outside in elementary school (except it was a map of the US.)

Hi Jackie

Yes - the markings are "thermoplast" ones which are extra tough and durable. They are expensive but a good investment if one knows what markings to put down.

Strangely we don't do four-square over here - other than when North American visitors come to schools and bring the game.
