Use this interactive bulletin board to encourage science students to find a science fact without your help. Great for research practice!
From the creator:
“I used this as an extra credit riddle.
Using the year and the clue science and falling students can find that gravity was first published in that year. Usually takes a week or two if another teacher doesn’t help students.
I give points for trying with educated guesses the student can justify. And a few more points for the correct answer.
It is created with a fabric background, construction paper letters, and a font from Word.
Leaves are construction paper and cardstock shaded individually with pastels.”
How can you use this board with your students?
- Change up the board every 2 weeks for students to find another science fact.
- Even if you don’t teach science, you could do the same with any subject and trivia questions.
- Challenge students to come up with the questions to try and stump the teacher instead.

Interactive Trivia Board
- Black fabric background: Using a fabric background is a change from the traditional paper behind it and can easily be reused over and over again.
- Red construction paper: Use this deep red color for the perfect fall bulletin board lettering.
- Assorted colors cardstock: Leaves look great made out of cardstock in yellow, greens, orange, brown, and reds.
- Blue iridescent bulletin board border: Offset all the fall colors with a sparkly sky blue bulletin board border.
Steps to Set Up:
- Begin by adding the black fabric background to the board.
- Then, add your blue border around the edges of the board.
- Next, cut out the title “Falling Into Science Since 1687” from the red construction paper. You can use a typed out font, an Ellison machine, or even by hand.
- Last, cut out leaf shapes from the colored cardstock in various fall leaf colors. Optional: use pastels, crayons, or watercolors to shade your leaves. Staple them all around the board as you like.
Making required bulletin board spaces interactive and novel will keep students engaged and looking to learn even more about your favorite subjects.
Use that to your advantage and keep them begging for more.
