This is a wonderful and cost-effective design for a forest school or just schools who need extra classroom space. Here are some key points that highlight the advantages and potential of this design:

1. Modular and Cost-Effective: Using 40ft containers is a practical and economical choice. Each classroom, made up of three 40ft containers, creates a spacious 24ft x 40ft room, which is both functional and versatile. This approach is more affordable compared to traditional construction methods, especially those with patio sliding doors.

2. Educational Value: The incorporation of a laboratory for the propagation and care of small animals like rabbits provides hands-on learning opportunities for students. It teaches responsibility, animal care, and environmental stewardship, aligning well with the principles of a forest school.

3. Adaptability: This modular design can be easily adapted to different environments, making it suitable for a forest school setting. The containers can be transported and installed in various locations, allowing for flexibility in site selection.

4. Engagement with Nature: A forest school benefits greatly from such designs as they encourage students to spend time outdoors, interacting with nature and learning in a less traditional, more holistic manner.

5. Simplicity and Functionality: The simple design of these classrooms meets basic educational needs without the added complexity and cost of features like patio sliding doors. This makes the solution both practical and budget-friendly.

Overall, this design not only provides a conducive learning environment but also promotes sustainability and environmental education, making it an excellent choice for a forest school.
