PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Our Hearts are Pumpin' for PE

Category: Jump Rope for Heart

Suggested Grade Level: k-5

Materials: Construction Paper, Markers, Bulletin Board Paper, Scissors

Description:

This bulletin board was made to inform students that February is National Heart Month. A 3 D heart was created by placing crumpled up bulletin board paper behind a large heart made of construction paper (anything that can be shaped easily). The point of the 3 D heart was to make it look as if it was "pumping". Strips of construction paper were used for the arms and legs on the 3 D heart, folding them accordion style. Cut out hearts were placed on the board with heart facts from the American Heart Association information received.
