Travel Themed Bulletin Boards

This ‘Let the Adventure Begin’ bulletin board was created using this Future World Changers bulletin board set and these Bon Voyage letter banners  (#ad).

A very similar bulletin board was made with the same travel the map bulletin board set. It comes with the text ‘Future World Changers’ as the heading.

To make a travel the world bulletin board, you will need these globe border trims, a wall map, and travel map decorations like these.

This travel themed classroom bulletin board has the heading ‘ON THE ROAD TO LEARNING’. (#ad)

This map is part of a ‘LET THE ADVENTURE BEGIN’ bulletin board.

This is a travel themed classroom library bulletin board. These letters were used to create the title ‘Reading takes you places!’

Travel themed classroom banner – Adventure Awaits bunting

This a a Travel themed classroom calendar from Teacher Created Resources. There are many cut outs for making bulletin boards to match this theme like luggage cut outslabels, and globe cut-outs.

Travel Themed Classroom Doors


These classroom doors are fully loaded with different bullletin board sets that are travel themed. The teacher used this 25 piece Explare Travel bulletin board set on the second door and bordered the glass panels with this globe border trim.


This travel themed classroom door has cut outs and an ‘Adventure Awaits’ banner. This same banner is also hung over the reading corner.

Travel themed motivational classroom posters (#ad)

This is a huge dry erase wall map for a travel themed classroom.

These posters are part of a travel themed bulletin board set that can be used as individual posters in the classroom.

This classroom reading nook is all about travelling through the stories that are in the library books. The travel themed cut-outs are dispered on the wall and the vines make you feel like you can really get lost into that other world. Reading is an adventure!

A party backdrop that is themed for travel can be added to your classroom to match your map themed decor.

This is a black and white wall map tapestry being hung from cinder block walls.

Instead of having a regular wall clock, have a map-faced clock for your travel themed classroom. It is also fitting for a history teacher’s class since the map has a retro look.

I like this small globe bulletin board with the message of exploring.

Laminate passport cutouts so that they can be reused for another school year.

More ideas will be added soon.
