PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Halloween Nutritional Bulletin Board

Category: Nutrition

Suggested Grade Level: K-8

Materials: Laminated food pictures, velcro, Ellison letters


The bulletin board says "Trick or Treat, what's to eat? Even Witches know. Make your plate a rainbow!" There are 5 white circles (plates), on the bottom and lots of laminated food cutouts all over. The purpose was to create an interactive bulletin board where kids can create a healthy meal of colorful foods. The foods are all attached with Velcro and there is Velcro on the plates. Kids can arrange the food however they like. The sign in the upper left hand corner says "Take the foods from below and place them on the plates to create a healthy meal." At the bottom it says "Time to clean your plate. Please put the foods back so others can have a turn.
I wanted to make it interactive for older kids as well, so I put the calories on the back of the foods. In the upper right hand corner of the board I put info. about calories. The white sheet says "All foods have calories. Your body needs calories for energy. School age kids should get between 1600- 2500 calories per day. The more active you are, the more calories you need per day. If you are not very active, you do not need as many calories. Below I put "How many calories are on your plate? and Can you make a plate of 600 calories or less?"
