PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Play 60 Minutes

Category: Fitness

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: NFL poster, precut stars, construction paper, border paper


The purpose of the bulletin board was to bring awareness to a NFL sponsored program that gets kids to take a pledge to stay physically active for at least 60 minutes a day. The website has daily physical challenges and nutritional tips for kids to stay engaged and interested. The website also has a pledge for parents to take which is a great way to reach out not only to children, but an entire community. It provides a way to entice parents to get involved in the physical well-being of their children, as-well-as their own fitness levels. Play60 has pre-made kits for schools to get involved, allowing them to promote fitness in their students and taking an active role in getting their students aware of how many minutes of physical activity a day they need in order to stay physically fit.

For my bulletin board, I chose to use colors that are associated with the NFL Play60 program. The red, white, and blue are signature colors of the NFL and the program itself. For the centerpiece of the bulletin board, I cut out a picture of NFL quarterbacks who are involved in the program from a poster I purchased. Many students look up to these players as role models, and making the connection between the program and their idols was essential in getting their attention to the program. I also chose to add many stars on the bulletin board, especially in the corners trying to make a dynamic, 3D effect where the stars are popping off the edges. I didn’t want to make the bulletin board too busy with lots of non-essential information and pictures, but at the same time have enough to make it look complete.

Additional Information:

NFL Play 60 is a huge advocate for physical activity and they have kits for schools to spread their website and message.
