PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Star Wars: May Your Health Be With You

Category: Fitness

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Stars with exercises written on them, Star Wars characters, Letters


Because Star Wars is popular again I wanted to find a way to incorporate that theme into physical education. I asked my students to write down some exercises they enjoy doing during our daily warm ups. I compiled the list and wrote each exercise on a star. Not only were the kids excited about the Star Wars characters, they were excited to see that "their exercise" made the board!

I went online to find the Star Wars Characters and created a list of exercises we use for warm ups as well at the locomotor patterns.

Additional Information:
