hanging,swinging,and balancing,can

way to make use of standard

  1. I agree with your answer for # 1.

    However, I'm afraid the NOT in the second question has goofed you up. The question asks which of the statements is wrong.

    Please think # 2 through again.

  5. Here's the question:

    "2. Which one of the following statements
    does NOT describe one of the benefits
    offered by a traditional playground?"

    A) describes a benefit because children practice manipulative skills on a playground. This cannot be the answer.

    B) states that children can best practice gymnastics skills on outdoor equipment. How can this be true? Gymnasts always practice and hold meets on indoor equipment. Mats are used below gymnastics equipment to cushion falls. This isn't practical outdoors. Gymastics skills can only be safely practiced in a more controlled environment with supervision and mats.

    C) challenges children to use imagery on a traditional playground. In my opinion, this is a little far-fetched, but it's an effective way of introducing creative play on a traditional playground.

    D) states that children can practice specific movements on outdoor equipment that has been changed to meet their needs. This statement also is true. Swings, parallel bars, etc., can be changed or modified (lowered or raised, for instance) to meet the size and skill level of individual children.

    B is the only choice that does NOT describe a benefit of an outdoor playground.

  6. The only way that D) can be the best answer is if your text states that playground equipment cannot be modified or changed.

  7. This is what my text states:

    The playground is the obvious and natural choice for many facets of the movement program. Unless you are fortunate enough to have the necessary
    equipment indoors,such gymnastic skills
    as climbing, hanging and swinging,and balacing can be experienced on outdoor equipment.

  8. my text also states; children cannot change the equipment to challenge themselves and practice specific movements.

  9. so,i am confused with this question-i still donot know if B or D would be the best answer. Can you please help me to understand? Thank you!

  10. Thanks for telling us what your text says.

    Yes, it's obvious that your question author believes that D is the best answer.

    I still disagree, though, because the question states that outdoor equipment is the best for gymnastics skills.

  11. Thanks. That's another good indication that the answer the question seeks is D.

  12. According to your text, outdoor play equipment cannot be changed, so D is the best answer for this question.

    As we've discussed before, some of your questions aren't very well written.

  13. Please remember, though, when you're supervising children on a playground, that gymnastics can be dangerous. If a child falls on her head, she could break her neck or back or suffer severe brain injuries. Many gymnasts -- even young ones -- suffer broken bones.

  14. Ms. Sue, I am still rereading my text-
    and it does not state that gymnastic
    skills such as clibing,hanging,swinging and balancing, can best be experienced on playground equipment. It says it can be experienced on playground equipment,
    if you're not fortunate enough to have indoor equipment. So,again,I am confused with this question. Please help
    me to understand,if you donot mind.
