PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Good Nutrition is Easy to Swallow

Category: Nutrition

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Bulletin Boad Paper, Construction Paper, Sharpie Pen.


Instead of the usual Food Pyramid, I used an idea from the Louisiana Department of Education, "Good Nutrition is Easy to Swallow". I added the crab holding a banner that says, "Eat Healthy, Stay Healthy!"

The fish are hand drawn, taken from a site,

This is a great site for anyone who may say, "But I can't draw!"

The fish and grass are not stapled flat, instead stapled with slight bends to give some dimension. The bottom of the scene is crumpled bulletin board paper. The students, especially the younger ones, have enjoyed the display.
