Valentine’s Day Activities for the Secondary Classroom

Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the elementary classroom. Students and teachers often spend the day sharing candy, completing heart-shaped activities, and playing games.

We don’t think this needs to be the case. Below, we have just a few ideas for secondary teachers on this upcoming valentine’s day.



How do you celebrate the holiday in your classroom?
