PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Look whats popping up in PE

Category: Beginning of School

Suggested Grade Level: K-5

Materials: Any color of bulletin board paper, red border, pictures of pooped corn to write on, KFC bucket, black letters, red construction paper, tissue paper, spray glue, and real popped corn!


I used popcorn pictures from a bulletin board kit and wrote different activities we would participate in thoughout the year, such as basketball, fitness test, scooter ball, and etc. I cut a KFC bucket in half and stapled it several times to the bulletin board. I glued red strips of construction paper to the KFC bucket so it would resemble a popcorn bucket. I stuffed the KFC bucket with tissue paper and topped it with real popped popcorn. I then sprayed the popcorn with a spray glue to make it stay in place. The bulletin board was used as a presentation tool at open house so parents as well as students could read what fun activities would be taking place throughout the year.

Additional Information:

The students love the fact that real popcorn was used! The first few weeks of school students would view the bulletin board and ask about the activities that were listed!
