This research was carried out to discover perceptions of fourth-grade pupils regarding love value among human values. It is a descriptive case study designed as a multi-method qualitative study. The study group consisted of 478 students attending the fourth grade of primary school. Data were collected by using three different materials as “Personal Information Form”, “Practical Work on Love Value” and “Semi-Structured Interview Form”. It was found out that the participants made pictures about love as a value in relation to 19 distinct sub-themes. It means that the students’ perceptions of love value were diversified. The main finding was that they tried to paint about love for friends the most. But conversely; it was shocking that love for Atatürk, love for school and love for books were the three least shown ideas in the students’ illustrations. Apart from these, the students used a large number of colours in their paintings. Of the data collection instruments, the interviews particularly revealed that the students could describe love in a large framework by using various concepts and they held the perception that love is often felt for those in proximity. They reported implementation of activities related to love value mostly in the context of Turkish Language, Social Studies, Painting/Visual Arts and Human Rights lessons in school. As for where to teach love value, most of the participants said that love can be taught everywhere. For the future, we suggest more research into perceptions of teachers, school administrators and parents regarding love value by using similar methods. In view of the fact that behaviours acquired at young ages turn more permanent, education of love value should be planned starting from pre-school years and works should be undertaken for direct teaching of this value so that students can build a sound understanding of love.
