ELAMS (Expeditionary Learning Academy at Moylan School) is an EL Education (formerly Expeditionary Learning) school that provides opportunities for students to engage in authentic, real-world experiences. Project Playground is a 10-week expedition in which 69 second grade students become experts on the topic of safe and accessible playgrounds.
Students believe in diversity and inclusion. Students with physical disabilities are an essential part of our crew (school community). Second graders spend time getting to know their friends with physical disabilities. They attend essentials (art, physical education and music) together and share special occasions with them.
They spent a very special day together at an all accessible playground called Jonathan's Dream. This experience, along with reading about children who made a difference, inspired them to research equipment for their playground.
