Cascade Outdoor Water Play System

The Outlast Cascade water play system will help to promote active, engaged learning in an outdoor setting and will be designed to promote cross-curricular learning as well as provide individual differentiated experiences. The outdoor water play system will 1)Provide students with opportunities to explore and experience real life erosion, flood control and experimentation with natural loose parts, 2) Help to develop observation and inquiry skills, and expand science vocabulary, 3)Help to expand social emotional growth by giving students the opportunity to establish positive relationships with peers and interact with peers, and 4) Provide hands on opportunities for students to compare and measure different objects in the outside environment using standard measurement tools.
