This product includes 2 cootie catchers (fortune tellers) for
Valentine’s Day. The first features questions related to the
symbols and origins of Valentine’s Day. The second contains
questions related to similar holidays and traditions around the world.
To begin the activity, students must fold the cootie catchers. In pairs
the first partner can have the other choose a vocabulary word
(Ferbruary, Cupid, Valentine, chocolate). The first partner spells out
the word while moving the flaps in and out. The second partner can
then choose a number and then another number while the first
moves the flaps for each count. The second partner can then choose
a final number that reveals a question to the first partner. The first
partner should hide and ask this question aloud to the second, as
the answer is included underneath. Partners can then switch roles.
Answer recording sheets are also provided.
