CES Valentine's Social Studies Project

Mrs. Strickland's third-grade, social studies class recently completed a project--"Hearts Around the World." In fact, the project was opened up for the entire elementary building for participation.b_150_100_16777215_00_images_stories_2017-2018_IMG_0694.jpeg

The students received multiple Valentine's from all 50 of the U.S. states as well as numerous countries around the world. Students placed heart stickers on the U.S. map and world map as they received cards to document from what location the cards came. The project exposed students to learn more about the United States and the world at large. People took time to write facts about their state, send photos, postcards, candy, gifts, and personal pictures of themselves with their Valentine. A few schools even sent whole class Valentine's as well. On Valentine's Day, the students received a video message from a Staff  Sargent stationed in Afghanistan.
