The Importance of Play

Pretend you are on a public or private school board. The board has decided, because the students in China are academically far ahead of our children in math, the board plans to do away with play periods and recess, starting with 5 year olds. They intend to add an extra period of math a day so that they can cover the math curriculum more quickly and add more abstract concepts. Write a 2-3 page paper that discusses 1) the important reasons for play in children, 2) developmental readiness issues for using abstract thought, and 3) issues of creativity. Cite any sources used in your paper. Sources provided below and attached.
