PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Exercise Your Heart/Brain

Category: About the Body

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: Construction Paper


This two part bulletin board was meant to give the students a different way of looking at doing things that are more for the mind than the body. I'm always emphasizing to students about exercising their hearts, muscles, bones, etc. I saw this as an opportunity to educate them about exercising a part of their body that I don't normally get the chance to.... their brain!

On the left, is a list of 9 different activities that are good ways to exercise their heart and I'm always emphasizing the importance of those. On the right, are 9 ways of exercising your brain. The list includes some activities that are offered at school and I'm hoping this board can give the students another perspective on those options.
