PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Winter Olympics 2010

Category: Olympics

Suggested Grade Level: K-5

Materials: Olympic Symbols and Country Flags


This year, for the first time, our school is participating in the Winter Olympic games with modified Olympic events. In order to create excitement and generate interest, this bulletin board was displayed for students when they returned from winter break. Students are currently in a training phase and are preparing for the Olympic Games. When the events take place, photos will be placed on the bulletin board and everyone will be able to see the progress of the Olympic games as they take place. Students are very excited to try something new and will be using scooters for skeleton competitions and carpets for skiing competition. It will be a terrific event!

We do mostly relays with our Olympic activities. We use a plunger (new of course) with a foam ball on top and do Olympic torch relays. We use walking boards for ski relays. We use scooter boards for curling. We use gym mats and scooters for luge and bobsled. Sometimes we use paper plates for ice skating. With the younger ones we use music and ask them to skate and dance like ice dancing. We do biathalon by running laps and then stop and toss a beanbag into a bucket, etc. It is great fun and we discuss the Olympic flag and its meaning and we discuss the various sports. We only do it for about a week.


What sort of other Olympic activities are you doing with the students? I am currently student teaching and am looking to come up with a few Olympic games for my classes. They are grades 1-3. Thank you!
