PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Fall to Pieces over Fitness (Halloween)

Category: Holiday-Halloween

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Die-cut letters, skelton pieces, appropriate related background


Labeled in orange letters over a black background (with minature skeletons), the board was a transitional bulletin board between my fall and winter units. The skeletons came from a game that I play with my 2nd through 5th grade classes where they put the skeletons together as part of a fitness center game. It's purpose was to reinforce the students awareness of their skeleton and it's importance to fitness in addition to being a fun spin on the theme of fitness. Every class had at least one student commenting on the board. Additionaly, each skeleton piece is labeled with the name of the bone and what part of the body it is (eg. femur and right leg).
