Students design perfect playgrounds

Sachel Josefson, BSU assistant Professor of Technology, Art and Design, and four of his students taught a ideal playground structure with Kim Bolte’s first-grade students at J.W. Smith Elementary on Friday morning. All the students were given their own sketch pad, crayons and sharpeners and were asked to design the perfect playground. That was followed by giving students magnetic building blocks to build the playground.
