Ideal learning settings were oriented to real-life situations, and materials were chosen to promote opportunities for children to explore and experiment. Dewey (1966) believed in an interdisciplinary approach in which subject matter or content areas were integrated. He also believed that storing materials in subject-area centers encouraged interest and learning in young children. More recently, researchers have examined the extent to which physical arrangement of furniture, selection of materials, and the visual–aesthetic quality of a room contribute to teaching and learning (Loughlin & Martin, 1987; Morrow, 1990; Morrow, Reutzel, & Casey, 2006; Morrow & Weinstein, 1986).
