Valentine's Day

I love teaching on the holidays! The kids are always so excited and it makes for such a fun day. The challenge we've always faced on Valentine's Day is that it is right before our state test! Yikes! This year, I have put together a Valentine's Day fun pack that will help kids review important material in a fun, "lovely" way. Feel free to use this fun logic problem with your students this Valentine's Day!

The best part of this plan, is our economics simulation. Kids will actually buy and sell items to decorate their Valentine's Day boxes! They love this so much that they hardly realize that they're learning about high demand and low demand items (isn't that the best? When you can squeeze a little learning into their day without even realizing it!)

What are your favorite Valentine's Day activities?
