Wildlife and room design...


     Well, I have been working long hours the past two days at school and I am not officially back unitl next week. There is just so much to do and I have put it off all summer! Bad news...I still have a long way to go in the lab. Good news...my principal approved the purchase of a wildlife cam! Does anyone have one of these at school or home? I have been googling and searching...I don't know which one to get. I haven't gone the hunter route and checked out the cameras they use, but I am heading over to the Cabela's right now. Kindergarten is starting the year with "Mysteries of the Wild" as wildlife biologists. I have ordered safari hats and binoculars. On campus, we have hawks, foxes, possums, and the occasional owl, so I thought it would be great to have a camera in a tree to capture what we don't see!
                                                                                                               

Now, I need some classroom design help...
Do I go straight with my lab tables?















Or angled?

  1. Love the angled look, but you definitely have more room to walk when they are straight. :) Sorry, I don't guess I helped you there, did I? LOL Congrats on the camera!

  2. I liked the room you have with the straight look. However, the chairs are acutally under the tables instead of stacked, so that may make a difference. Yet, the angeled look will bring more creativity to your room. Whereas the straight look is so every classroom (the norm). It's always so hard to decide. Good luck!
