PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Ways to Love your Heart!

Category: Health

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Construction paper, markers


I made one large heart and wrote "Ways to Love your Heart" on it. Then you cut out a lot of small hearts and have students write how they show love to their heart, but doing something healthy. I gave the students some ideas and some students came up with their own. For instance, some student wrote "drink more water," "Play 60," "get plenty of sleep." They also wrote their names on their heart so they could find it and others could see their healthy goal. I just stapled all the small hearts around the big heart.

One thing that worked really well is using Student Council, if you have one. I had Student Council cut out the hearts and help me come up with ways to be healty. They also ran a table at breakfast and explained to the students how to write on the hearts. It was really neat for this board to be student led instead of teacher led.
