This question differs from question 4 in that we are interested in examining whether or not a child has the opportunity to participate in co-active, interactive, or cooperative games. There may be enough equipment to support a diverse amount of games and play, but that might not lead to organized games being available. Consider the structure of the playground (is it organized in a way that defines areas for games/play) as well as the social climate (do children start games in these spaces).
A score of 1 means that are little to no activities for the students to participate in.
A score of 2 is when the games/activities offered are all the same.
A score of 3 is when there is a small variety of games/activities being offered and students have the choice between the games offered.
This play space offers hopscotch, basketball, and 4 square on the blacktop, but there are no organized games set up in the grass space (score 3).
A score of 4 is when there is a large variety of games/activities being offered and the students have the choice to choose between all of the games.
The above video shows examples a variety of games and activities during recess (4-square, kickball, soccer, jungle gym, possible track for racing).
