PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Winter Olympics 2010

Category: Olympics

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: Pictures of each winter sport, Silver wrapping paper, letters and picture cut out. Cut-out Snow Flakes


This bulletin board was made to introduce the students to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.

We point out the different sports that are involved in the Winter Olympics. We talk about the different events and compare them to what we do in physical education. The students figured out that curling was almost like bocce ball or shuffleboard. We live in the south and the kids are not around snow. This board opens up their world up to new sports events. The students in my 8th grade actually help put the board together.

I found the pics!!! Check out ...the only issue is that you have to search for each event individually.


This is perfect!!! Like everyone else, the pics are impressive and I'd love them! Where did they come from???


Hi! Has anyone heard from this awesome teacher about where he/she got the icons, pictures, etc? I want to start putting my bulletin board up asap, but I have not heard where I can find the pictures. I have tried 'Google' and other luck. If anyone has any luck, please email me at
