Activity Overview

Valentine’s Day is most often associated with romantic love: love letters, flowers, special dinner dates, chocolate, and armed flying babies. Love can be something that can surprise us, make us nervous or embarrassed, or bring us comfort during troubled times. Let’s celebrate all the different forms of love, not just that mushy stuff, but the connections we have in our communities.

For those who need a little inspiration, here are a few ideas on who we love and when we see love:

  • family
  • friends
  • pets
  • couples
  • sacrifice
  • happy/sad times

My example tells its “story” with pictures in a quilt format, rather than a linear narration. Each cell shows an example of love, but there are different emotions and connections involved. I chose to leave the words out and let the pictures speak for themselves, but titles and/or descriptions would certainly clarify storyboard cells. Use a storyboard like this as its own activity, or piece together student work in a bigger quilt!
