PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Ropes Course Adventure

Category: Adventure Education

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: bulletin board paper, diecut letters, border, pictures


This bulletin board was created after our entire 5th grade class participated in the ropes course adventures. After the field trip students then enter a team building unit in PE. Students learn more about each other, how to work as a team, conflict resolution, problem solving and much more. As an introduction to my team building unit, I ask the students what allowed them to do those activities at the ropes course. I also asked if they could have done any of that by themselves? Students are then asked if they could have done the more difficult challenges alone, the answer, "no" because of safety, security, and efficiency etc. Studnets love the team building and the rest of the school enjoys looking at all of the fun challenges 5th grade participated in. Seeing that if you put your mind to it, anything is possible
