ESL Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day Lesson

by www.elcivics.com

Valentine's Day is on February 14th. It is a special day to celebrate love and friendship. On Valentine's Day we give cards, candy, and flowers to the people we love. School children sign Valentine's Day cards and bring them to school for their classmates. They decorate paper bags during art class to hold their cards. Some teachers show their students how to make Valentine's Day cards for their parents. Adults listen to romantic music, write love letters to each other, and eat dinners at restaurants. Popular Valentine's Day symbols include red and pink hearts, bows and arrows, and Cupid. Cupid is a mythical figure. He is a winged god of love and the son of Venus. (3 pages)
