Creating the Math/STEAM Lab

Over the past many years, I have been transforming my classroom.

Lately however, I feel the need to update it more to make it a wonderful math/STEAM lab.

Here's what I'd like.

Rolling tables and chairs rather than desk.

Shelving for student portfolios, folders and math supplies. Here are a few options I've noticed. I want to steer clear of plastic, however, due to environment.

Items to enhance our recycling efforts:

Item I already have that I want to keep include the kidney shaped table, one big desk, lots of white boards, projection items, rolling carts with drawers, a STEAM supply center, bulletin boards, rugs, book shelves, and cozy chairs.

I think this would improve what I can do to teach well.
