Ms. Hagood from Hillsborough NJ is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Building A Better Playground!

My students need new outdoor playground equipment. The Watch it Flow water table and Giant Outdoor Building Blocks would allow for sensory and STEM exploration on our playground.

My Students

Our school is located in Hillsborough, NJ serving approximately 2500 students from varying backgrounds. In our diverse school, students have the opportunity to take a variety of classes to explore career options that interest them. Our program serves 3-5-year-olds in their early development, as well as 11-12th-grade high school students at the end of their grade school experience.

Our students are part of a unique laboratory preschool program where preschool and high school students come together to learn.

The high schoolers teach the preschool children and the preschool children look forward to seeing their "big buddy" every day!

My Project

The children enjoy spending their time outside running around, riding on trikes, gardening, and participating in pretend play. Our current playground equipment is aging and in need of replacement. As we replace our equipment, it would be beneficial to have equipment that allows our children to learn through play.

Whenever possible, we enjoy taking our learning activities outside so that the children can explore nature along with our materials.

Having giant blocks that are sustainable to the outdoors would allow children to explore shapes, problem-solving, engineering, and pretend to play with their peers. Additionally, the water flow equipment would allow for sensory play and students to explore what happens when water travels from one surface to another (cause and effect).
