Do you want to do something different (and academic!) for your Valentine’s Day party or centers? The Great Cupid Caper is an engaging way to practice math, CVC words, sight words, engineering, and science, and more! Your students will be highly motivated to complete the stations, earn keys, and help Cupid save Valentine’s Day!
The Premise: The big idea is that someone broke all of Cupid’s arrows, stole his magic flying dust, and locked up the class’ Valentine’s Day treats.The students will complete stations in order to help Cupid get some new arrows and find a new way to fly. As each activity/task (station) is completed, the students will earn a paper key. Once all of the stations have been completed, the class will earn a real key which will unlock their Valentine Day treats
