Mrs. McBloom has been teaching at Knickerbocker Elementary school for fifty years now.  And for most of those years, people have been asking her to clean up her room.  She has it on her to-do list but never seems to get to it.  Every year brings more science experiments, more lost and found articles and more books.  And it just gets messier every year.  But now Mrs. McBloom is retiring and the new teacher is not looking forward to inheriting Room Five!  Mrs. McBloom has a great idea.  Let the kids come up with ideas of how to clean it up fast.  Can this possibly work?
