PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: 2010 Winter Olympics display

Category: Olympics

Suggested Grade Level: 3-12

Materials: bulletin board paper, trim, colored paper, Olympic facts and information, newspapers, magazines. online photos and info


The purpose of my board is to expose the students at my school to the world-wide event, various facts about it, the sports that they have never heard of and the achievements and emotions of the athletes. And to get the students excited about it. I also incorporated the board into my lessons. Classroom teachers also brought their students to the board. I started with the logo and what it represents, the rings and what they and their colors represent, along with the Olympic Creed, Oath, Motto; listed all the participating countries with their flags, all the sports and the dates of the Games.

As the Olympics got underway, I added photos found in newspapers, magazines, online and gradually added more and more. So the bulletin board, over time, got fuller and fuller. Once all the space was filled, I started switching older photos with newer ones. So the board always changed.
