We have just started the new school year here and many of you have already started. Good luck!
The design of our class and how our students are seated, the furniture that we have certainly has an influence on our students and even on our classroom management. Here is a cool tool that you can experiment on the layout of your classroom without carrying your furniture around. This is Classroom Architect!
We can select the basic dimension of the room, drag and drop objects and even we can draw and color our own objects. We can change the position of the items or delete them. When we are done, we can print our classroom plan.
This can be a cool first week activity as we can ask our students to design their ideal classroom, print and talk about why they have designed it this way.
