    • Read The Valentine Man story to your class and have students use the doodle buddy app on the iPads to create a picture of the Valentine Man as you read the story.
    • Create and print a creative Valentine using the Sketches for School, Doodle Buddy, Paint Gallery App on the iPads
    • Use the Paint Gallery App to design your own conversation heart.
    • Learn how to take your pulse by following the directions at this site: Taking a Pulse.  Use the "Tap the Pulse" app to calculate the pulse rate of each member of the class.  Compare pulse rates on a chart or graph.  Run in place and do it again...what are the differences?  Want to know what a normal pulse rate is, see Mayo Clinic Heart Rate Page
    • Read familiar quotes about hearts at "Who said it?" and use websites to find out the authors.  Maybe then write your own quote!
