First Week: The Atomic Shark

For our English class, we, the Grade 7 and 8 have been assigned a project to design the classroom of the 21st century. Our teacher named the projet "The Octopus Garden". We have to find things that will make it a more comfortable environment, but at the same time, must explain its educational purpose.
This is the first week and the round 1 for our project. My Group, The Atomic Sharks have been assigned to find suitable furniture for our classroom. We have managed to design a survey and get it checked by Mrs.Holly. We have given it out to a few teacher but still have many more people to survey. Our main question is whether we want tables or not, because if we don't, we might as well not research into them. We have also been thinking about furniture that would be very easy to move so that we can have a more flexible and open classroom. The grade 7s have also been looking at using recycled materials to make some couches and shelves. I think this is a really good idea as it fits well with the environmental feel the walls and ceiling groups have been thinking about.
It would really help if everyone in the Octopus Garden could fill in the survey for us.
