The board was built to promote the use of active video games. In physical education, the students get a small taste of playing and participating with active video games, but the board showcases great games that they can do at home. On the board is a list of active games that they can play with the Wii, XBOX, and PS3. The board is a great discussion piece and gets students talking with one another about what games they really like to be active with. The pictures give a great visual of students their age playing the game.

Additional Information:

On the bulletin board you could have students put their favorite active video game. This way the student body can see reviews on games from their peers.
