Bulletin board activities, which encourage interactivity, are perhaps the best type of display to engage and involve students. Students spend more time viewing and attempting to understand these types of bulletin boards. Students are able to move pieces around, solve puzzles, and answer problems and questions. This type of kinesthetic learning encourages students to build understanding and introduces new concepts in an exciting way.
