PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Hickory Elementary is Thankful (Thanksgiving)

Category: Holiday-Thanksgiving

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Ellison Machine, bulletin board paper, clip art pictures


This bulletin board was put up in November for the students to see the wide variety of opportunities that we have to stay active. I used lacrosse, softball, snow skiing, hockey, football, basketball, horseback riding and hiking to assemble the letters. I used clip art and publisher (poster size 16 x 20) to create the different sports equipment as letters. Most of the pictures were cropped to be around 4 sheets (8.5 x 11) per picture then cut out and laminated. I then use a banner design on publisher to finish the wording (for the opportunities to be active!) The Ellison machine was used to write our schools name and to decorate the sides with leaves. The students are having fun figuring out what some of the letters are!
