PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Dem Bones Are Healthy

Category: About the Body

Suggested Grade Level: 3-8

Materials: black butcher paper, skelton, orange paper, yarn, die cut letters, glue


I used orange paper to die cut the title and to print out the information on. On the left of the board I printed the lyrics to the song "Dem Bones" and on the right sign I labeled the name of the bones mention in the lyrics. I used a skeleton you can buy at most supermarkets around Halloween. Of course the thin, glow in the dark ones would work too. I secured the skeleton using a command hook hidden behind the paper. On the far right of the board, I have information about how to keep bones healthy- such as types of actives/exercise, how much calcium to eat. Lastly, I created a trick-r-treat tote filled with bone healthy foods (milk, orange juice, broccoli, and bread) for the skeleton to hold. I used this for a P.E. class.
