Help me create the best grade 6 classroom ever… with a budget of $200.

My brother, in his quest to be everyone’s favourite teacher ever, wants to have the best classroom ever, and has enlisted my help. The class is grade 6 (11-12 year olds) in a not-so-rich suburb of Melbourne, Australia.
What he already has:
- Musical equipment: drums, keyboard, guitar, etc.
- Our old tan leather couch, brown rug, cushions
- A bookcase with books
- Brand new chairs on the way, in red, blue and light blue
Things I have:
- Enough time to order things off the internet and have them posted
- A sewing machine
- Enough time and patience to make things myself, I’m not put off by projects that are time consuming or fiddly
Some vague ideas I have:
- Basketball theme
- Music theme
- World map/world flags/map of Australia
- Some sort of roof decorations
- Different biome themes around the room – beach, desert, rainforest
- Some sort of interactive artwork that the kids can work on during the year
- Some way to display work that the kids do throughout the year
I’m hoping for some ideas for a classroom that looks great, and also has some sort of educational merit, and on how to get the most impact on my budget. Please throw any and all ideas at me!!
