Description of Idea

At the beginning of the year and after teaching the rules and protocols in the gym, I have an art contest where I ask the students to pick out one rule or protocol that we have discussed in the gym, and to draw a picture and turn it in to me.

After reviewing all the pictures I pick out the art work that best depicts the rules and protocols that I expect the students to follow throughout the year in the gym--one picture per rule or protocol. Then I glue the best pictures to a piece of poster board and make a heading "Class Rules". I laminate it and post it on the wall for the entire school year.
