PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Gobble Up Physical Education at Thanksgiving

Category: Holiday-Thanksgiving

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Bulletin board paper, leaves, and multiple colors of construction paper


The purpose of this board was to show what concepts are involved in our elementary physical education program. I have tied it together with Thanksgiving. Each piece of food is labeled with concepts in physical education. The turkey is the sports, ham is teamwork, mashed potatoes is fitness, bread is exercise, butter is skills, cranberries are the warm-up and the drink is a cool-down. I have stapled real leaves to the board, and also created a coach turkey.
