PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Full Court Puzzle Press

Category: Sports

Suggested Grade Level: 6-8

Materials: 6 basketball cutouts, large blank laminated crossword puzzle, mounted crossword clues, mounted title


This is an interactive bulletin board. A large (poster sized) laminated crossword puzzle is in the center. The across clues are displayed and mounted across the top, the down clues run down the right side of the board. 6 basketballs containing the actual word choices (16) are displayed along the bottom. The words (either 2 or 3) are in the school colors which are yellow and green. The title is mounted and displayed on an angle on the left side of the board. The purpose of this board is to encourage and motivate the students to "become involved" by reading the clues and identifying the correct responses in a fun way.
