PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: It's Your Life... It's Now or Never

Category: Health

Suggested Grade Level: 6-12

Materials: It's Your Life...It's Now or Never


It shows the life of a smoker and the life of a non-smoker. I printed pictures of mouth cancer, lung cancer, Emphysema, yellow/rotten teeth, bad breath, early death, and a pregnant lady smoking. We discuss in class all of the consequences of smoking and I use the bulletin board to help give them a visual of that smoking can do to their lives. I then have healthy people who have chosen not to smoke. However, because I know some of my students and teachers in the building smoke, I also included tips to quit smoking. I found these on the internet.
