You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included for differentiation.

The Valentine’s Day – Bee My Valentine Collaborative Block Poster can be used as a fun team building activity to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Students work together to piece their Bee My Valentine “block” with their classmates. The result is a beautiful, fun, one of a kind pop-art to hang in the hall.
You can use the Valentine’s Day – Bee My Valentine Block Poster as a bulletin board display, hang on the classroom wall, classroom door, hallway, school entrance, library, gym or any place you see fit. This poster will pop and students and teachers will stop to admire your work!
Each student colors their own block/piece of the poster. When everyone is done, they have to work as a team to put the block poster puzzle back together. Each poster has an abstract background to make your poster “pop”.
Students will need color pencils, markers or crayons, tape and scissors.
This is GREAT for community building and teamwork!
How you choose to set it up in your classroom is up to you. Each student colors one “block” or section of a large poster. This product includes 25 “blocks” or pages to color. I do understand that most of you have less than 25 students, as do I. There are ALWAYS early finishers who are willing to color a second block. Some blocks will take more time than others due to picture detail. Often times, I even color a block with my students! Print the file ONE time for each class on 8.5×11 paper!
•25 different blocks to color (1 per student)

•The final poster size is around 32”x 32”
