Product Description
*This is the upper elementary version only. Teachers who wish to go much deeper in historical critical thinking will want the full version which is appropriate from 4th grade gifted and talented through 12th grade.

If you're looking for a meaningful Valentine's Day activity for your classroom, then you've found it here.

Students dive into historical thinking with primary sources as they examine a vintage valentine postcard from 1918, complete a comparison activity, and then refer to more primary source photos as they gather details for a short, constructed response. Is that a boy or a girl on the postcard anyway? And just how are valentines from 100 years ago different from valentines today?

These activities help foster the all-important visual-language connection for today's 21st Century Learners.

This packet of activities includes the first three activities from the full lesson appropriate from 4th through 6th grade. It includes primary sources, activity sheets and student critical thinking guides, forms for written responses, extension ideas, and sample answers and responses. Primary sources include vintage postcards and photos from the Library of Congress.
