PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: "Witch" is Your Favorite Sport? (Halloween)

Category: Holiday-Halloween

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Witch Cutout, Letters, Sport Ball Cutouts, Halloween Sequins, Borders Background Paper, Bucket (for votes)

Description:

The bulletin board shows a witch and many sport balls, with spider and cat sequins to add some pizzazz, a bucket to hold the votes, and a Halloween theme border. The witch cutout was used in place of "which" in the question. The question was discussed in pe class, with the students voting about a week later. This bulletin board was used to integrate math and pe (see additional info), while at the same time, celebrate Halloween.

Additional Information:

The pe teacher and I wanted to integrate pe with math activities, so this board was designed so students could make graphs (of favorite ball sports) with the voting results. We used a play on words with the "witch" cutout. The students in the elementary then voted for their favorite ball sport, with the first graders using the information to make graphs in math class. Several different graphs were made-boys and girls results, by grades, and then overall results.
