PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Eat the Rainbow

Category: Nutrition

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: paper, die cuts, fruit vegetable clip art


This board was built to reinforce 1 (of the 5) concepts of a healthy life we are learning this year. The board encourages students to eat a wide variety of colors of fruits and vegetable in order to consume a wide variety of nutrients. It is interactive as there are 5 colors with question marks on the color. When the paper is lifted it reveals the most potent vitamin(s) you receive from that particular color group. There are also many vegetable/fruit clip art displayed on the board and each tells what comes from each type of food. The kids enjoy learning about the different fruits and vegetables.
