Science teachers need great bulletin board ideas too!
From the creator:
“Practice good habitats”, a play on words to fit a junior high science classroom.
I used construction paper letters, shredded paper for nest, purchased border, all on a fabric background.
How can you use this board with your students?
- Have students brainstorm a list of habitats.
- Then, the children each get a blank piece of paper to draw a bulletin board to represent one of the habitats.
- Finally, assign students a homework assignment to do a creative writing prompt where the setting is their habitat.

- Black fabric: Use a simple black fabric as your background for your bulletin board.
- Red lettering: The red letters really stand out against the black fabric background.
- Animal print border: A fun and funky animal print ties in the habitat science theme.
- Craft feathers: Having a 3-dimensional effect adds a fun flair to your finished project.
Steps to Set Up:
- Begin by placing your fabric background on the entire board.
- Next, add your animal print border around the edges.
- Add your title to the center of the board: “Practice Good Habitats.”
- Use a paper shredder or cut up strips of newspaper and attach under the letters so it appears as a nest.
- Finally, attach some feathers to the top of the nest as a final touch.
This simple bulletin board is a great play on words that still ties into the science curriculum and can be used by intermediate, junior high, or high school teachers.
