PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Creeping Towards Good Health (Halloween)

Category: Holiday-Halloween

Suggested Grade Level: 2-6

Materials: Butcher paper, spiders, and spider webs


October is a month that observes many national subjects of health awareness such as National Dental Hygiene Month, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, National Healthy Lung Month, National Talk about Prescriptions Month, Depression and Mental Health Month, Brain Injury Awareness Month, Physical Therapy Month, and much more.

I talk to the kids about how being healthy is a lifestyle. You can't be unhealthy one day and suddenly healthy then next. It often takes time to develop healthy habits that are permanent. We talk about eating correctly and exercising daily instead of doing fad diets.

This board is an October themed board that exhibits what we have learned above. It says "creeping" because of the long process towards attaining good health. I provided ideas and templates for different spider crafts. Then I used a few that the children made outside of P.E.
