Valentine’s Day is almost here!

February 09, 2012 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: worksheets

I created several Valentine’s Day lessons that you can check out at my store on Teachers Pay Teachers. One that I am especially proud of is Valentine’s Day Around the World:

There are 28 pages filled with activities for your students. My children enjoyed learning about how other countries in the world celebrated Valentine’s Day. They really loved the page on Korea since Korea has a ‘love-type’ day on the 14th of every month. They thought that was really neat.

With this booklet your class will visit six countries: Japan, China, Germany, Italy, Denmark and, as I stated before, my children’s favorite: Korea. Your students can keep track of their travels with their own passports, with flags that they can paste inside for each country that they “visit”. After each country has been studied, students can complete an activity sheet for that country. The unit concludes with a Valentine’s Day card glyph and a bar graph to chart the class’s results.

You can even do what we did for our Valentine’s Day card glyphs. Instead of them giving them to a parent or loved one, we sent them to a Ronald McDonald’s House with the hope that the families there will get a little smile from receiving the cards. If you don’t have a Ronald McDonald’s House near you, you can send your cards to a children’s hospital or you can leave me a comment and I can give you the address of a Ronald McDonald’s House that is accepting Valentine’s Day Cards in North Carolina, where we are sending our cards.

If you’d like to purchase this product you can do so at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
