PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Fall into Fitness

Category: Fitness

Suggested Grade Level: K-2

Materials: Leaf garland, letters to spell out "Fall into Fitness", white paper turkey feathers, white paper turkey head, crayons, printed movements (7 ways to move in gym)


This Fall Into Fitness board was created to connect the holiday theme of Thanksgiving, while continuing education on fitness and movement. Each child in my lower grade classes was given a blank fitness turkey to create. They were able to color the turkey any color. Then they cut and glued the feathers printed with 7 different ways we move in the gym (walking, hopping, jumping, skipping, galloping jogging and running), one movement per feather.
