Re: Classroom setup idea.......

Great minds run together, don't they?

One year I copied the room's floor plan on the back of the final exam and invited students to come up with a new or favorite plan. At the edge of the paper were the little desks and tables and other furniture, all to scale, so they just cut them and then glued the final arrangement.

After reading your post, I thought of a brilliant idea....well...brilliant
in MY mind! I think I'll make up a scaled layout of my room on 8 1/2 x 11"
colored copy paper. Another colored copy paper I'll layout scaled furniture.
I'll run off copies and give to the kids at some point early in the year.
They can cut out the furniture and arrange on the gen. layout plan and
"design" a room arrangement for a project. THEN...I'll have some more ideas
about room layout and they will have some imput on their own classroom
setup. Thanks for the inspiration, Dennis. Toodles....Bunki
