The Geography Bulletin Board Ideas page will provide you with great resources for a number of geography related topics. Our bulletin boards will help you integrate various activities into your daily curriculum. Ideas within the geography bulletin board pages include resources for the following: the five themes of geography, regions, postcards, world geography, and timelines.
We are always looking for new ideas! Your creativity can help other teachers. Submit your bulletin board idea and don't forget to include a photo if you have one!

Plot Your Course Wisely Grades 3+
I bought a large world map at the teacher store, cut it and laminated it. I placed it on the wall with black border and placed the caption, "Plot your Course Wisely." We can use dry erase markers to plot a starting point and a destination, estimate distance, or compare routes. It is an excellent interactive board that helps the kids discover important concepts on their own.
United States/World Postcard Geography Grades Any
Put up a map of the US on a bulletin board. Try to receive a picture postcard from every state. As they arrive, have the students locate the state from which it came, mark the state with a map pin, and then display the cards on the board around the map. You can also have a small copy of the map that will allow students to also color in the state. This is a great way to learn state capitals as well. You may consider putting a post on our message board if you are interested in exchanging postcards with other classes. Visit our Pen Pals Support message board.
