PEC: Bulletin Boards for Physical Education

Title of Bulletin Board: National Hand Washing Awareness Week Dec. 6 - 12

Category: Health

Suggested Grade Level: K-5

Materials: poster board, construction paper, pre-made letters


I put this bulletin board together because Henry the Hand Foundation sent out an eNews letter about the Hand Washing Awareness Week December 6 - 12, 2009. I used the information sheets provided at the website for my idsplay. I put a giant hand up to draw attention to my bulletin board as well as small hand cut outs. Kids need to be reminded daily about the importance of washing their hands.

Additional Information:

Check out Henry the Hand Web site for great information and sctivity sheets for your kids.
