Middle and high school teachers enjoy incorporating holidays into the secondary classroom just as much as elementary teachers, but it can be difficult to find age-appropriate materials. Enjoy these Valentine's Day reading and writing activities for grades 7-12 in your English or history classroom!
Included in this pack:
- A choice of two warmups
- Two articles on the history of Valentine's Day
- Worksheet with questions on the article
- Persuasive writing prompt
Please note this is a Zip file to include multiple documents. I included DOC and PDF files. The PDF versions have the original formatting and text; the doc versions may not keep the same fonts and formats.
Note: The History Channel article mentions a ritual called Lupercalia, and there is one line about "gently slapping" women with goat hide for fertility purposes. That article may not be appropriate for below 8th grade.
