PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: The Food Pyramid

Category: Nutrition

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Food pyramid pocket chart with food cut-outs, food group labels, and letters spelling food pyramid


The bulletin board is made up of a food pyramid pocket chart. Within the pockets are foods that belong with each food group. Around the chart I have the 5 food groups listed, and I have FOOD PYRAMID running around the chart. The chart was made to remind the students to eat health, while teaching the younger students about the food pyramid.
