PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Is Your Snack Worth Your Time?

Category: Nutrition

Suggested Grade Level: 9-12

Materials: Construction Paper, Cricut Machine, Printer


The board shows the common snacks that I see the kids eating on a regular basis. I also included healthier choices for them to compare their favorite snacks to. When you lift the flap it shows the number of calories the snack contains and how long it will take to burn off those calories on the various cardio equipment in our Life Lab in minutes. The numbers posted are for the calories burned by a 155 pound person per hour. The intent is to show the kids that the healthier snacks can be burned off a lot faster during their workouts.
