How to Create Cheap Classroom Decor Using Maps

Are you wondering how to decorate your classroom without spending a lot of money? This classroom decoration tip will be helpful to elementary teachers.

Aside from the fact that I totally want that rug for my playroom at home, I'm featuring this photo because of the map wall.

But, I would think having a permanent display like this would be a great way to expose our friends to geography. It could serve as a center. It could be available for students who have finished their assignments. You could create task cards to go with it.  Or you could just have it up as decor because it looks fab.

I've never featured a travel theme classroom during my classroom theme series, but it is certainly on the agenda now.  Suitcase storage? Love that too! And the hanging globes? Lovey love love!
