Be My Valentine Geometry Project Based Learning – 3rd Grade

⭐Be my Valentine geometry is a project-based learning task that involves using 3rd grade math standards to celebrate Valentine’s Day. In this project, your students will make valentines to give to their classmates, friends, and family. 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 in 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 celebrating Valentine’s Day.

  • 3.MD.C.5 Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
  • 3.MD.C.6 Measure area by counting unit squares.
  • 3.MD.C.7 Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
  • 3.MD.D.8 Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
  • 3.G.A.1 Understand that shapes in different categories may share attributes and that the shared attributes can define a larger category. Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
  • 3.G.A.2 Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole.
