Title of Bulletin Board: Calcium: Building Strong Bones
Suggested Grade Level: K-5
Materials: Background paper, Title, Pictured cow decorations, construction paper, Human bone picture, fun food/exercise boarder, print out 6 riddles, and Milk,cheese, yogurt, broccoli, and pinto beans images
This bulletin board demonstrates 6 foods/drinks that are dairy and non-dairy products that are high in calcium. The theme of this bulletin board is, “Calcium: Building Strong Bones.” The 6 riddles I have attached below should be printed on white computer paper and glued nicely onto pink constructor paper, forming a highlighted boarder. Then stapled to the bulletin board only at the top of each riddle, allowing the student to still flip up to see the visual answer underneath. After reading the riddle the student is to then begin to think of the answer in their head. Once you think you know the correct answer flip the riddle upwards and you will find a picture of the item that the riddle was describing. You were right! The idea is to get all 6 riddles correct so that I know you have achieved the lesson. You are now able to clearly identify 6 major foods/drinks that are high in calcium, some being dairy and some non-dairy products, accommodating to those who may be lactose intolerant. Also there will be a picture of a human bone, showing the student all parts of a bone, and why it is important to eat and drink calcium enriched foods to build strong dense bones.
