This Valentine's Day lesson and activity includes a reading comprehension passage about the holiday and directions and materials to create a valentine card with a tiny envelope inside full of hearts with messages written on them. It also includes teacher directions with a link to a demonstration video, student directions with photos, an answer key, and a scoring rubric.

Reading Passage - The reading passage explains that Valentine's Day happens each year on February 14th and celebrates romantic love as well as friendship. It explores the mysterious history of the holiday, which was named by the Catholic Church for Saint Valentine and has its roots in the pagan holiday, Lupercalia. It goes on to describe how Valentine's Day is celebrated today with the exchanging of valentines as well as gifts like chocolates and roses.

Heart Card Craft - This download includes directions with pictures, a video demonstration, and all templates needed to create a Valentine's Day card. Students color the card and then construct a tiny envelope which they glue inside. Next, they write messages on tiny paper hearts to complete the sentence "I admire you because..." and place them inside the envelope. Students can give these cards to someone they admire on Valentine's Day.
