Another sentence written by my son:

Why don’t we open up two special areas at our school? One for PE activities and the other for casual activities.

The boldface part looks incorrect to me——it doesn't have a verb!Is it a wrong sentence? How to correct it?

One for PE activities and the other for casual activities.

The sentence is fine. The verbs are there.. sort of. They have been omitted, but they are implied.

One [of those areas is] for PE activities and the other [of those areas is] for casual activities.

I would write your sentence like this:

Why don't we open up two special areas at our school-one for PE activities and the other for casual activities?

Punctuation mark at a proper place can serve our purpose.

    CAUTION! you are expressing "school" and "one" as a single Idea which is incorrect. Give a space between the two and put a dash: "School -- one"
