PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Nervous System

Category: About the Body

Suggested Grade Level: 6-8

Materials: Computer print outs, nervous system skeleton poster, brain lobes poster


This bulletin board is posted in the health room. It has posters that were bought at a teacher store and letters cut out of construction paper. In the center is a box that states "please take one" that has an informational handout. The nervous system is a topic in the curriculum. It is a great visual for the students which will help them understand the brain and nervous system.

Is the objective for this board posted anywhere?

If not, it should be. That is the one of the most important fundamentals when creating a bulletin board.

The second would be keeping it simple. This will help keep it more visually pleasing and alluring. Most people tend to overlook something that is ridden with words or that is all jumbled.

Great idea, just needs a little tweeking in my opinion.
