The Problem

We have found that some students make poor behavioral choices during recess and lunch time on the school yard. They express conflict in inappropriately verbal and/or physical ways. Research studies have shown that by increasing green space in an environment, peaceful behavior increases and stressful and aggressive behaviors decrease.

Our Plan

We would like to alleviate the problematic behaviors on the school yard by increasing greenery on the yard.
