PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Road to a Healthy Heart

Category: Physical Education

Suggested Grade Level: K-2

Materials: Poster board, colored pencils or markers


At the top of the bulletin board there is a bold title �ROAD TO A HEALTHY HEART�. Under that is a picture of a road with two hearts at either ends. The heart in the beginning is a weak heart. However, the conclusion of the road depicts a strong healthy heart. Along the road are various fruits and vegetables and activities that require physical movement. These include running, jump rope, and soccer. It persuades children to take part in these various selections and exemplifies that these options are valuable for a fit heart.

Additional Information:

The board met several NASPE goal/objectives. Competency goal 4 states that the learner will apply knowledge and behavior self management skills to areas of nutrition and physical activity for healthy growth, development, and maintenance. The second objective under this goal is to identify a variety of healthy food choices. The bulletin board confirms this with pictures of fruits and vegetables including grapes, an apple, banana, green beans and carrots. Also, objective five says to explore various movement activities and predict benefits of physical activity. Along the road are assorted activities such as running, jump rope, and soccer. As the road concludes, there is a picture of a strong healthy heart. This shows that these activities are beneficial for the heart making it stronger. The activities exposed can be done at home. This is important because exploration of activities that require physical movement during non-school hours is specified in competency goal 8, objective 2.
