PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: Spread the word, not the germs

Category: Wellness

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: Washing hands posters, pictures, bulletin board paper


This bulletin board was created for a poster contest I did on washing hands. Students had to create a poster on washing hands. The following is the criteria...

Posters should be on 12 x 18” white (or colored) drawing paper. Must include 1 or more of the following themes: the importance of hand washing; the 4 principles of hand washing awareness – 1) wash your hands when they are dirty and before eating 2) do not cough into your hands 3) do not sneeze into your hands 4) do not touch the T Zone (eyes, nose and mouth); and hand washing for disease prevention

Each poster must include name, grade, and homeroom teacher on the front of the poster. Students also did a relay in PE on handwashing to incorporate wellness into PE.
