Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “valentine.” The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century, but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia. Why not explore the history of Valentine's Day with your class? Learn how to say "I love you" in one of the many beautiful languages around the world! To get started with some ideas, watch the History Channel's video (see above) about things you may not know about Valentine's Day or visit: www.teteamodeler.com/culture/fetes/je-t-aime.asp for some classroom ideas.
