PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Feed Me What I Need

Category: Nutrition

Suggested Grade Level: K-2

Materials: Bulletin Board Paper, Die Cut Fruits and Vegetables, Microsoft Clip Art, Posters from My Pyarmid for Kids and Team Nutrition


Th Holidays bring with them lots of opportunities for eating. I take this time of year to enlighten my students about food groups and making Healthy Choices. We discuss serving sizes and balancing our intake of food with exercise.

I use this bulletin Board as a introduction to the food groups for Kindergarten and a review of food groups for First and Second grade.

The weeks leading up to Thanksgiving we play games associated with Food and Nutrition. The Bulletin Board becomes a reference for the students who are trying to identify which food group different foods belong in.

When the board is taken down the poster will remain up in the room and another in the hallway outside the cafeteria.
