I know we always have a lot of classroom decorating idea threads, but I'm starting another one. I'm stuck! I am obviously doing a space theme, and I want something fresh...new...exciting...something different! I teach 6th, so it has to appeal to older kids. I have a difficult room, not a lot of wall space to put stuff up against. Everything has to be out in the middle of the room (cabinets on 2 walls, boards on the 3rd). Here's what I have so far... My computer stations are going to be Mission Control. I would like to spice them up a little, and make it seem like the real MOCR. I am going to attempt to build a scale model of an orbiter. We'll see how this goes. I have had a model airplane hanging from my ceiling for a couple of years, but I think I'll change it out with a shuttle. I need bb themes-more than "reach for the stars" or "Mrs. J's shooting stars" etc. Something 6th graders will say..."wow, that's cool!" In short, I'm not really sure what I want...I just know I want it to be cool!
