Question: What sticks to concrete blocks? Answer: Nothing very well! Ever try to decorate a room made of concrete blocks? I have been taping posters, homework, charts, etc., to my classroom walls. I would like my classroom to be interesting, engaging, and full of information. In order to do so, I need to hang some posters. With the help of cork strips, I'll be able to easily hang posters and take them down with reusable tacks. Cork strips will allow us to display the students' work, enabling them to gain pride in their ability while encouraging further educational pursuits. Furthermore, a neat and orderly classroom inspires similar behavior in the students.
