"Math Adventures!" Interactive Nautical Themed Bulletin Board Idea

Nautical Themed Interactive Math Bulletin Board Idea

Submitted to us by one of our Facebook fans, this awesome interactive math bulletin board works perfectly, not only in a nautical themed classroom, but in any elementary/middle school setting! While originally designed as a way to help students practice multiplication and division, we love that, because of its simplicity, it can be tailored to fit lots of different learning goals!

Math Adventures!

  • Background: Cover the entire board with white bulletin board paper. Cut a strip of blue background paper, using scissors to scallop the top edge, and arrange it along the bottom edge of the bulletin board to create the 'ocean/waves'.
  • Title: "Math Adventures!
  • Border: Ocean themed trimmer or complimentary colored/patterned bulletin board border.
  • Decoration: Linda used Mardel's "Ready, Set, Sail" bulletin board set to create this design. Whether you purchase a similar set or find clip art online that can be used to create your own, you'll need the following elements to recreate the design - a large ship on which to write the learning goal, mini ship accents on which to write specific problems, and to fill any blank space, other nautical themed accents like a compass, a ship's wheel, etc.
