Recess is very necessary to a child's development. It assists in the development of large motor skills and provides a mental break to the children. Students learn best with the breaks in the day, especially your hyper active children. Children tend to be less attentive in the classroom when they are not given these break times. In addition to the need for a mental break and the development of large motor skills, these tools will be wonderful to combat obesity. We all know that obesity is becoming an epidemic in the United States and some other parts of the world for our children. Keeping children active in a fun way that interests them would show them that activity is fun. They can enjoy staying healthy. Our playground is in a low lying area. When it rains outside, the playground remains wet for a week preventing us from using it. Because of this, we are restricted to a concrete commons area with nothing for the children to play with. This proposal is one of many to come for play equipment that the students can safely use in a concrete play area. In this case, specifically, a set of bikes with helmets.
