Backpacks/textbooks/lockers
To accommodate heavy books, a rolling backpack is useful. 6th grade lockers are not near the 6th grade bungalows, so are difficult to access between classes.
Books can be copied & bound into segments, so students don’t have to carry the entire book to school. Self-copying at a copy/print shop is suggested. Many teachers have a classroom set of textbooks to use, so that students can leave their textbook at home for homework use.
