Valentine’s Day Word Search with a Personal Finance Twist: Engage Your Students with Cash and Cupid

Instead of searching for your one true love, why not search for Valentine’s themed words instead? NGPF’s newest holiday-themed activity, Cash and Cupid: Valentine’s Day Word Search is a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your students. 

A Twist on Traditional Word Searches

This isn’t just any old word search; we’ve added a personal finance twist. After students find all of the Valentine’s Day themed words, they’ll use the remaining uncircled letters to solve a riddle: What is key for both enduring love and sound investing?


Quick as a Cupid’s Arrow to Implement

The puzzle is available in a Google Doc that contains both the student-facing word search that can be printed and the answer key. There are 18 words plus the riddle, all of which can be completed in around 15 minutes. 


Team NGPF is sending a bouquet of thanks to all the teachers who impact the hearts and minds of countless students year-round.
