PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Heart Wall

Category: About the Body

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Heart cut outs, tape


This was created to acompany a school initiative focusing on heart health. Every student in the school recieved a heart cut out that said, "My favorite activity to keep my heart healthy is..." Each student in the school filled out a heart. Students wrote things such as, "running, soccer, swimming, jumproping, playing in the snow, pushups" etc. The heart wall was created by all demonstrating a committment to heart health. Students learned about the importance of exercise, eating healthy, and taking care of their hearts. This is a great lead up to circulatory system games and units of instruction.
