PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Treat Yourself To Good Nutrition

Category: Nutrition

Suggested Grade Level: 5-8

Materials: Orange and black construction paper, candy and granola wrappers, halloween decorations from local dollar store, typed nutrition information, punch-out letters, stapler


I created this bulletin board during my pre-student teaching semester. The title, "Don't Be Tricked..Treat Yourself To Good Nutrition," was introduced to students as the October month began and Halloween holiday candy eating would be approaching. I utilized seasonal decorations to add a three dimensional appeal to the board for students. I wanted to educate students on healthy alternatives to excessive candy intake and moderation options.
