PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Hooo is Ready for fun and fitness

Category: Beginning of School

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Construction paper, die cuts


I decided to use owls and do a play on words because owls are a very popular back to school item right now. I think that this will make it more appealing to my elementary students. In the beginning of the school year, I spend a lot of time talking about what fitness is and why it is so important. I also pool their summer experiences and ask how many people spent time working on their fitness. This allows me an opportunity to break the misconception that exercise is rigid and hard. We talk about fun things they can do in school and out that are considered fitness and exercise.
