Bins for Books

Help me give my students sturdy organization bins to go on our shelf spaces.

My Students

My 4th-grade classroom is full of 31 curious learners in Anchorage, Alaska. We are our district's first STEM school and this is the second year of the program. The students are a mixture of neighborhood and lottery students.

My STEM cubs love to learn and are constantly on the move.

Through the engineering design process and project-based learning, the students learn the importance of planning, executing, and learning from mistakes. We are learning how to be thinkers again and seeing how far the human mind can go.

My Project

To be efficient learners in a small classroom we must maximize our space and organization. My 31 students sit at tables instead of desks. The tables are great because it allows for more collaboration and learning how to share workspace, but there is no storage for our textbooks, folders, notebooks, etc.

We have shelves where the students keep their supplies and I made 31 bins out of cardboard, but they are not holding up with how much we exchange our materials as we switch to different subjects throughout the day.

The current cardboard bins I made will not be suitable for the next school year. Some won't make it to the end of this year. These new bins would last for many years and would keep our shelf space looking spiffy.
