Description

Need a fun Valentine's Day Library Activity for secondary students? This Blind Date with a Book Set-Up Kit helps make set-up easy and stress-free. It includes everything you need to let your students do the bulk of the work, saving you time and energy.

NOTE: Because I use the term "blind date," this activity is best-suited for middle and high school students. If you prefer the term "mystery book" instead of "blind date," please see Unwrap a Mystery Book instead. It's the same product, but it does not use the term "blind date." Unwrap a Mystery Book also works for middle and high school.
