3. Valentine's Day Box
I love this Valentine's Day Box idea from Fabulous Fourth Grade Froggies.
Students are asked to create a Valentine's Day Box to hold their Valentine's and must contain a number of math concepts.
Some of the requirements include:
- a long division problem
- a 2 digit by 2 digit multiplication problem
- a heart with a line of symmetry

This is a great project that allows the students to get creative while practicing their math skills. I would love to see how these boxes turn out!
