This bundle contains the following resources:
1. Valentine’s Day Virtual Field Trip – Primary K-1
Let’s all take a field trip! In this Virtual Field Trip for Kindergarten and 1st-grade, students get to experience Valentine’s Day! This virtual field trip contains video links, images, passages, and more. Students experience Valentine’s Day through multimedia and YouTube links.
This resource integrates a variety of skills. Students watch videos and read small blurbs to help them complete drag and drop activities while learning about the history of Valentine’s day, who was Saint Valentine, remembering him, going to Rome, and more!
*Please note: This resource includes links to YouTube videos, so ensure you and your students have access to YouTube before purchasing. Although great care has been taken to ensure all content is appropriate for the stated grade levels, each classroom is unique and it is recommended that teachers review all content prior to use. I recommend embedding the videos to avoid ads and other content that may be inappropriate. Instructions for embedding the videos are included and it should only take a few minutes. Also, keep in mind that any links to third-party content may be changed or removed by the content owner. All links are reviewed regularly; however, if you find a broken link, please let me know so I can update the resource accordingly.
Google Slides & Seesaw Formats – These interactive formats are perfect for classroom and distance learning. Slides are interactive and can be used as a fun and engaging exercise within the classroom or remotely.
Engaging Interactive Maps & Virtual Video Tours – Interactive questions & virtual video tours take students inside the action.
Reading Comprehension – Integrates grade-level reading skills!
Science & Social Studies – This virtual field trip helps students understand more about the world around them and uses movable pieces to explore their reactions and ideas.

This resource is suitable for the following grade levels:
- Kindergarten: With teacher modeling, whole class, small groups. Students who are non readers will need teacher support for reading.
- 1st Grade: With teacher modeling, whole class, small groups, or independent work depending on student level
This virtual field trip takes approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. The time it takes to complete can vary based on your students. It can be completed in one session or broken up into multiple sessions.
2. Valentine’s Day Bakery Truck Project Based Learning
Valentine’s Day bakery Truck is a project-based learning task that involves using 1st & 2nd grade math standards as they build their own bakery truck in time for Valentine’s Day. This resource contains a standards-based unit in both printable PDF and Google Slides versions – so it’s the perfect activity to increase engagement and interest for any classroom. Additional “challenge activities” engage students and develop further understanding of the concepts and skills.
This project-based learning task involves using the following CCSS math standards to solve problems related to building a bakery truck in time for Valentine’s Day.
- 1.G.A.2 Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
- 1.G.A.3 Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares. Describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and a quarter of. Describe the whole as two of or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
- 2.G.A.2 Partition a rectangle into rows and columns of same-size squares and count to find the total number of them.
- 2.G.A.3 Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares. Describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
- 2.MD.D.10 Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.
✏️ Printable & Digital Format – Printable PDF & Google Slides formats make this resource perfect for classroom instruction, distance learning, and everywhere in between. Digital and printable versions are consistent, so they can be used for combination classroom and virtual instruction situations.
✏️ Educational & Engaging – This resource will capture the imagination of your students while they practice key math skills.
✏️ Differentiation – Three challenge activities mean that you can challenge your high-performing students while making the resource accessible to your on-level and below-level students.
