PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Health Related Components of Fitness

Category: Fitness

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: pictures of physical activities and exercises, push pins, paper


We are assessing our students on their knowledge of the health related components of fitness. They will be taking a paper/pencil test in the spring. To check our progress, I incorporated a tree thinking map bulletin board into our fitness circuit training. I put a blank tree map up and at the beginning of class we put up the four components. Then, they went out to the stations for fitness. When each group got to this station, each student picked up one picture from the floor and pinned in under the correct category on the tree map. I also had a fitness activity there for when they were finished. After every group had completed all the stations, we gathered at the bulletin board, checked our answers and changed any wrong answers to the right category.
