Title of Bulletin Board: Muscle Memory
Suggested Grade Level: 3-5
Materials: Large skeleton, file folders, muscle pictures, yarn, push pins, cardstock
This bulletin board was designed to help students learn the muscles of the body. Each week I selected a different muscle. I put images of the muscle on the body, used the yarn to direct attention to that particular muscle, and included one card with what the muscle is used for and another card for an exercise integrating that muscle. Each week I review the old muscles that are still on the skeleton before starting the new muscle. In the older grades, students are selected to read the cards, and in the younger grades the teacher usually reads them. I only selected very large muscles and tried to keep them as simple as possible. Muscles included were: quadriceps, calf, deltoid, biceps, and abdominals.
