PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Vancouver Olympics Medal Count

Category: Olympics

Suggested Grade Level: k-8

Materials: die cut letters (MEDAL COUNT), country names, string or other material to seperate for gold/silver/bronze and colored paper medals


This bulletin board shows the medal count of the Olympics (Note: not the final - picture taken during the games). In light of the 2010 Winter Olympics I decided to give each class a country to represent them in the Olympics. Country names were put in a hat and drawn to keep things fair. The purpose of this board was to get the students to watch the Olympics and to pay attention to other countries aside from the U.S.. Students every day would come in and check the board to see how many medals they won and fill me in on who won medals for their country.
