PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Hearts and Valentines is a 13 page handout that features 24 heart rebuses or idioms that represent familiar expressions that contain the word "heart". (e.g. "From the Bottom of My Heart" or "Cross My Heart") Each illustration uses a picture or symbol to represent a word or phrase. The students must use logic and reasoning skills to solve the 24 rebuses (idioms).

Just copy the 12 pages of illustrations (two per page) using a color copier. If you do not have access to a color copier, you can enhance the hearts by hand coloring them. Each day during the month of February, put up one Heart illustration as a student focus activity, OR, if you choose, place two or three up at one time or all of them up at the same time. Students are to figure out which Heart expression the picture represents. It can be fun, but also a very challenging Valentine's Day activity!

The answers are included on the last page of the handout.

My husband uses these with his 8th graders, and they look forward to solving one each day. He even gets a laugh once in awhile!

You are so welcomed. I know my husband's kids really like these. He posts a different one each day in the month of February. Some are easy; some are not!

This activity is one I plan to use each February; the are artwork on each heart is creative and causes the kids enough consternation that they want to come up with the answer. It's a lot of fun especially with eighth graders, who are sensitive about love. Great focus activity!
On  January 9, 2012Scipi answered:
Well, I hope your 8th graders "fall in love" with it, but also have fun! Thanks for your input.
