PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: "Swing" into fitness

Category: Sport Seasons

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Drawings of lifetime sports that are played in spring and summer


This year we have put a big push into the Play60 campaign which encourages our students to get out and play for 60 minutes a day. We used the phrase"Swing" into fitness because we chose 3 sports that involved swinging equipment and striking a ball such as tennis. Within 2 miles of our school, our students have access to tennis courts, baseball/softball fields as well as a par 3 and miniature golf course. By introducing them to these lifetime sports, we are hoping that they choose to continue them outside the gym.
