PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: "Irish" You Healthy Habits

Category: Holiday-St. Patrick's Day

Suggested Grade Level: K-2

Materials: construction paper, poster, food group stickers, 4 large paper shamrocks, small paper shamrocks


This board explains about the 5 food groups, while emphasizing the celebration of St. Patrick's Day. In PE class, we played a leprachaun game where the students had a chance to get coins. Some of the coins had one of the food group stickers on the back of them. Before each PE class, each group was given a shamrock and food group sticker that matched the color of their bucket. There was a lesson on the 5 food groups. After each PE class, the shamrocks were put on the "Irish" You Healthy Habits bulletin board.

The 4 big shamrocks had exercise stickers on them. In addition to the healthy foods, it was emphasized how important it was to exercise to maintain healthy habits, too.
