    Race Car theme
    By MLK

    Clip to ScrapBook
    We just finished with a race car theme this year in 7th grade middle school. We have 4 very large bulletin boards above our lockers. We used red sparkle border and found black/white checkered flag material at hobby lobby; you can also find this at a party store as a roll of plastic tablecloth. We covered one board with road maps from an old atlas; put a black meandering road down the middle and titled it "On the Road to success"; We covered one board with black shiny fabric and put our team motto in large letters surrounded by several road signs modified for education. A local sign person did these for use and donated everything. Other smaller boards were "Fuel for the Brain" , this was from a website; Brain in the middle with books from each subject area and arrows from each book going to the brain. "All fired up for learning" fast car picture with smoking tires. On one board we covered the middle with black fabric and each end with the black/white check. We took a picture of each of our students individually in front of a checkered fabric background, then cut them out in flag shapes and glued on popcicle sticks and stapled them to the board.
    Hope these ideas help - have a great year.
