PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Have a Ball this Summer

Category: End of School Year

Suggested Grade Level: K-5

Materials: blue background paper, yellow paper for sun, tan paper for sand, white paper for clouds, ellison letters


I posted this board before the end of the school year to encourage students to "have a ball" over the summer. The beach balls and umbrellas have been made to look like sporting equipment to remind students to get out and play over the summer.

Additional Information:

To make the umbrellas, I made one pattern and traced the rest. Each umbrella is a different sport ball. The football I made on brown paper, the tennis ball on green paper and so on.

The beach balls were traced using a plate from home.

The clouds & sand were torn from paper.

The waves were made from crumpled up paper for a 3-D look.
