This activity has students kiss a sheet of grid paper to find the size of their kiss. (This works best if it is copied on colored paper like pink). The teacher hands out cotton swabs to the students with a dab of petroleum jelly for students to smear on lips. Students then count the squares and fractions of squares to arrive at a total for the size of their kiss. Students are also asked to measure the length and width of their kisses in inches. This activity will work well on a day when students are having Valentine parties to incorporate math into the festivities. Students are learning how to find area, length, and width while using both metric and customary measurement guided by the questions underneath the grid.
