GLOBAL PLAY DAY
In his TEDx lecture, Peter Gray clearly argues the case that today's kids do not grow up playing and this has negatively impacted them in many ways. It's time we return the gift of play to this generation.
February 4, 2015, was the first annual Global School Play Day for students in schools around the world. In year one, over 65,000 students participated! Over 177,000 students took part in 2016. In 2017, over 283,000 kids celebrated Global School Play Day. In 2018, over 385,000 students from 58 nations participated.
On Wednesday, students at Indian Fields participated in play that involved a choice from many games in the gymnasium. On Friday, students at Dayton will enjoy the same fun.
