“History’s Valentines” is a handout which can be used in several ways, while still meeting objectives in a number of subject areas. Students are asked to match notable people from history with their significant others. Some historic figures will be easy to match while other pairs may need a little research or support from others.
Though it has a Valentine theme, History's Valentines can be used any time of the year. Historical figures come from Biblical times to the Space Age, so it is unlikely that all your class will know every person listed. Women are listed by their birth names.
