PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Healthy Bodies Under Construction

Category: Health

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: toy construction items, caution tape, black letters, paper and picture examples of healthy behaviors


Our school building was under construction for a few years and our building theme was "kids of character under construction". I used a play on those words to create "healthy bodies under construction". It also coincided with a health unit I do that teaches basic nutrition, healthy behaviors and simple fitness concepts.

I found the cutouts for the bulletin board at our local university's book and supply store. I found the caution tape at our family's lumberyard and the toys came from a local toy store. However, all of these items could be downloaded from clip art pictures on the internet.

Has anyone got an answer on what the board says


I would like to know what the bulletin board says, print is too small :(


Was anyone able to get the content that was on the board? I want to put this up before the school year starts but I can't see what it says.

Thank you :)


Love to know what each bullet states.


What is on the bulletin board in writing? Can't read?


Could you please let us know what it says on the bulletin board. I cannot see it even if I zoom in on it. Thanks in advance.
