In the project, students will advocate for making the classroom a place they want to be. Students have tremendous power to promote change in their surroundings if they provide evidence and communicate the desired change in an effective way. Students will be researching what classrooms can look like and how they would want to make our room. The students will apply the 5 Themes of Geography but in an abstract way (example - Movement - in the classroom movement happens when ideas are exchanged).
The students will identify what the main purpose of the classroom is and then develop a plan to enhance the learning process for all students in the classroom.
