Note: We have completed a makeover project for a small office in the school this past year and the students truly loved doing this. They had true hands on experience. We still have some kinks to work out but the concept worked well. The class contained students with disadvantages as well as gifted. They were able to pull together and complete the project without any conflict over abilities.
We now have a waiting list of rooms that teachers and administration wish for us to makeover.
