PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: XLR8 Your Brain Power

Category: Integration

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: cut out letters using Ellison, white paper to make car dials, number from Ellison, pictures of a city, sports equipment, ship, man, bee and a license plate made out of blue paper


This bulletin board encourages the kids to think as they read each phrase. Each phrase relates to Physical Education. This board has been very interactive. The kids and teachers have had fun "reading" our board. They have even given us new words to add for next year! This board can be put up any time of the year. We choose PSSA (PA State testing) week so the kids remember they use their brains in PE too!

Additional Information:

XLR8 = Accelerate
Inn + 10 + picture of a city = Intensity
picture of a bee + CR8IV = Be Creative
sports equipment + man + ship = sportmanship
NRG = energy
Fizz + Ed = Phys. Ed = Physical Education
