Early Childhood Education

Appropriate materials and equipment for
outdoor play should contain which?

1. a lot of immovable parts
2. some loose parts
3. large,simple,steel units designed
for a single purpose.
4. hard,strong surfaces for ground cover

Shouldn't the materials and equipment
contain a lot of immovable parts?

I don't know what you mean as "loose" parts. I see kids haveing fun on a swing (is the swing "loose"?), or on a play car (is the steering wheel "loose'?)
If answer b were written "some movable parts", it would be a great answer.
For the most part, outdoor equip should be hard to dismantle (immovable) parts, including screws. It should have some movable parts, however. Answer 4 is silly, answer 3 is off on a "single" purpose...kids have a lot of imagination. I guess the way the answer 2 is written, I would go for answer 1. I have seen curious kids and vandals take apart things that were intended to last a long time.

Can someone else give their input on this question,please?

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. You might like to know that there is a National Program for Outdoor Play:

You're right - it should. But Bob's answer is also correct. Seems it should contain a lot of immoveable parts, but moveable parts are also ok. If your teacher says ONLY #1 is correct, ask how they would make a swing :)

If your teacher says ONLY #2 is correct, ask what they would attach the swing too or what's wrong with playground equipment that do not have these things?

If your teacher says 3 or 4, demand a refund from the class and ask for a different teacher :)
