WHY CHOOSE A TRAVEL CLASSROOM THEME

A travel classroom theme helps you create an adventure-filled learning environment where your students feel like world travelers whenever they enter!

Teachers love this theme because it helps create a classroom that can be described as calm and neutral. They also love it because they have the flexibility to take the theme where they want it to go. For example, they can create a simple modern space or a cool vintage environment depending on what color elements and DIY decor ideas they pull in.

This theme works well for both lower and upper elementary classroom decor.

BULLETIN BOARD IDEAS

BULLETIN BOARD BACKGROUNDS

Navy blue, brown, or black butcher paper can be used as a bulletin board background. You can use a large map or several smaller maps for a background. If you choose to use fabric as your bulletin board background, simple colors like black, brown, and navy provide a nice backdrop.

BULLETIN BOARD TRIM

  • boarding passes
  • postcards
  • maps
  • flags
  • little plastic compasses
  • tickets

BULLETIN BOARD TITLES

  • “(Grade) is Going to Be an Amazing Journey!”
  • “Oh the Places You’ll Go”
  • “Hard Work Will Take You Around the World”
  • “Now Boarding”
  • When creating your own titles, use words like passport, journey, adventure, or aboard.

OTHER IDEAS FOR A TRAVEL CLASSROOM THEME

  • Use old suitcases or travel trunks as storage in the classroom.
  • Collect travel brochures and add them to your classroom library.
  • Ask friends and family for globes to use as decor throughout the classroom.
  • Hang inflatable globes from the ceiling.
  • Incorporate flags from around the world into your theme.
  • Dedicate a large space to a map of the world. Title it, “Reading Can Take You Anywhere” and use it to mark locations that are settings in books that you and your students read throughout the year.
  • Set up a display of books that relate to the theme by standing them on a counter or shelf.
