PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Even Olympians Start Small

Category: Goal Setting

Suggested Grade Level: k-2

Materials: Bulletin board boarder, pictures


For the Socchi Winter Olympics I wanted to do something that showed students that even their favorite Olympian had to be a kid too. One day during class I snapped pictures of kids doing their stations. After each class we talked about how would each station help you in the Olympics and in real life. We used jump ropes and a mini rebounder for jumping and endurance. Balance beam and balance boards for balance and concentration. Jacks and scoops for hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. The kids really enjoyed seeing their pictures on the board and being compared to a real Olympian.
