PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: What is Sportsmanship?

Category: Sportsmanship

Suggested Grade Level: 3-8

Materials: magazine clip outs of athletes demonstrating sportsmanship and quotes about sportsmanship from professional athletes.


Our students were having trouble during Physical Education class time when it came to game play. They are extremely competitive and were struggling with the concept of "losing" or not having as many points as another player. In some cases, the "winners" would boast about their performance. This board was created to demonstrate what good sportsmanship should look like and motivational quotes/phrases to support the concept.
