PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Bully or Buddy?

Category: Bullying

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Multi-colored construction paper, left over art scraps (fur, feathers, etc.)


Each year our students sign an "Anti-Bullying" oath and in all classes we discuss the characteristics of a "Buddy" and the contrasting "Bully". This board called "Bully or Buddy?" shows several creatures that either the students or the teacher can make. (Big noses, wild hair and large feet make them more appealing). A buddy or bully characteristic is printed on the front of the creature. The students, after reading the trait, will decide which one it is discribing.

Additional Information:

Some traits to use are: takes turns; helps people and says encouraging words; likes to push people and hit them; can't follow class rules; likes to tease people and call them names; kind and considerate; cares about other peoples' feelings; has a lot of friends
