PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Factoring Fancy Footwork

Category: Integration

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Poster board, punched letters/die-cuts, glue

Description:

This bulletin board was made as a visual aid for a lesson on rhythmic movement. The purpose was to show the students a way to integrate math and music into physical education. I showed them how to make a factor tree using the beats of music and the moves used when performing "The Cupid Shuffle" dance.
