Pit Crew Bulletin Board

This is one of my fav bulletin boards to get up and running every year. It's simply adorable and it serves as an ongoing display space for work all year.  Students make a racer portrait of themselves flanked with a laminated piece of paper for the body. This is where I switch out the work to display.  The cutest feature is attaching the race flags to each hand. Now if you don't have a race theme you could do the same idea but say attach an Ipod if you're doing a Rock Star theme, or a mitt or ball for a sports theme.


I also have the students fill out a Get to Know the Pit Crew form.


Got a favorite lesson? Go share it over at The Third Wheel's Linky party.

  2. Great bulletin board. I love how they are peeking over their work and I'll bet you can identify each student from their picture. Isn't it amazing how we can figure out who forgot to write their name on their paper by the handwriting!

  10. Thanks for sharing. I have a question though. How in the world did you embed your google doc to your blog? I have been trying and trying but can't figure it out. Thanks
