5th Grade Makes Playground Improvements

Mrs. Burton’s English class worked on a project based learning activity last week. They chose to make small improvements around the playground. They made lists of needs, things they could do, and supplies needed. They worked in groups to write business letters of permission to the elementary principal, and maintenance department. Once they had permission and supplies, they went to work on their project. They greased squeaky swings, removed fallen leaves, swept rocks from sidewalks and basketball court, repaired a volleyball net, and sorted rocks and mulch. Way to go! You practiced writing business letters, thinking and working though making task lists, assigning project responsibilities, and then the actual work in cleaning areas that could easily be improved on the playground! Way to make our NCS playground better!
