I am thinking about what theme I should do in a middle school classroom. So far I have thought about a board game or travel theme. Any ideas would help!

A travel theme is fun and pretty easy to do. I have used a travel theme in the past. I was able to use the decorative maps and famous landforms pics during reading for setting and during social studies activities as well. It was fun having a theme that actually related to the content of our studies from time to time. I think your middle school students can relate to this theme better than a board game theme. JMO

Good luck what ever you decide. What subject do you teach in middle school?

I don't teach however the classroom is a literature classroom. Any ideas you can share about doing a travel theme? I was thinking of incorporating travel with planes, boats and cars.

If these are 6th through 8th graders I would focus more on destinations/ geography than transportation. I would also select realistic/ photo type decorations. Here are a few ideas I would choose.

I also got some old maps at garage sales and used them to cover bulletin boards and back of bookshelves.

I created a large compass rose and applied to the ceiling.

theme could be an addition that you could incorporate into your travel theme. Ditto pposters on using geography, history, and possibly goal setting (The Road to College Begins Today) This website allows you to create your own license plates for names or titles

You received some great resources from 1956BD
If you goggle-- Road Trip Bulletin Board ideas you will gather even more great resources.

I have done a travel theme before and it is so much fun!

Our 5th grade class did a board game theme a couple of years ago and it was great!

go to Pinterest and search for board game themes many come up.
I hope this link works. Some really fun ideas on it!
