Children’s preferences for natural and man-made elements in the school ground were examined among primary school children at Sekolah Kebangsaan Bukit Indah, Johor Bahru, Malaysia. A set of survey questionnaire were given to 35 respondents (20 boys and 15 girls), aged eleven-year-old, during a pilot study conducted on January 2011. The questionnaire contained 17 items of various school ground elements and 5 types of weather, which the children need to score their preferences. Data gathered from this pilot study were analyzed using Bon&Foxsteps software, a Rasch-based item analysis program. Results of the analysis indicated that children prefer man-made elements over natural elements in their school. However, the result also showed that children desired for the natural elements for their school ground.
