Valentine’s Day Activity For The Classroom

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love and caring for other people. Newspapers often contain special features and advertisements that focus on Valentine’s Day. Even the comic strips in your newspaper will probably contain several references to Valentine’s Day, since comic strips often reflect current events or real life situations.

Spend several minutes reading each of the comic strips in your Valentine’s Day edition of the newspaper. As you read, place a checkmark by each comic strip that in some way refers to Valentine’s Day.

On a piece of paper, explain the Valentine’s Day connections you found in four of the comic strips. Write the title of the comic strip then explain what happened in the comic strip that had to do with Valentine’s Day.
