PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Help Your Family Make Healthy Choices

Category: Health

Suggested Grade Level: k-5

Materials: Ellison machine for letters and numbers, pictures, border, print shop


Put this board up in the cafeteria where the kids go everyday. The board is trying to persuade the kids to make healthy choices by the numbers. Each number 1-5 promotes a healthy choice they should make every day. We got this idea from a NRG Balance promotion we received in the mail.
1= 1 hour of physical activity each day
2= 2 or less hours of screen time each day
3= 3 meals a day
4= 4 or more cups of water a day
5= 5 or more servings of fruit and vegetables a day
