PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Reach For The Star (Christmas)

Category: Holiday-Christmas/Winter

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: Construction Paper, Tape, Sissors and Paint


Every level of the Holiday Tree represents a skill goal that each student should be able to achieve in a limited amount of time (such as minimum number of pushups, sit-ups, pull-ups). As soon as the student achieved their skill goal, working as a class, they were allowed to decorate an ornament that represented their particular class. When the tree was fully decorated, the students were allowed to put the star on top, a symbol that they all achieved their goals. Not only did they experience a sense of accomplishment, they also have a fantastic Holiday decoration!
