I used this activity with my sophomores and juniors on Valentine's Day. I had romantic decorations, and I placed funny sayings on books explaining why they were lovable. I placed books throughout the room and allowed students to select their "first date." I gave students about five minutes per book to read and examine the cover and the first few pages, and we rotated to new "dates." At the end, students had to explain which was their favorite date and why.
This activity would be fun for a variety of students, as teachers have the freedom to select books from every genre and reading level.
