|Enough room for each child to stand|
The architects who are working on the new building came to talk to the children and brainstormed with them about what is needed in a school. First, they talked about how architects think about measurement, size, and purpose of the space to determine how much space is needed. Then the children did a few exercises to illustrate the point. They stood close together, had a string wrapped around them and were asked if this is enough space for them. "NO".
Then they laid head to toe. "Better". Finally, they were shown what people have determined is a good amount of space for children in a school classroom.
