PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Don't Monkey Around, Let's Play Safe

Category: Safety

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: Pictures of Playground Games and Equipment / Other P.E. or School Rules you want to emphasize


Take pictures of playground equipment specifically jungle gym equipment like slide, balance beam, fire pole, rings, bars, and bridge. Also take pictures of playground games like tetherball, four square, and hopscotch.

Type out rules and staple them next to the pictures.

At the beginning of the year, use the board as your visual aid as you go over the rules.

Cut out monkey, tree branch, and grass to add to board.

If you want to leave it up year round, you can re-visit the rules after big breaks like Christmas and Spring Break.
