Groundhog Day

It’s GROUNDHOG DAY! And we’re celebrating our beloved little whistle pig with research, writing, art projects, snacks, and more!  We use our  READ IT UP creation for Groundhog Gets A Say!

Groundhog Activities

We read the book Groundhog Gets A Say because it’s a fun story packed full of information and facts.

We also do a labeling activity to build explicit vocabulary instruction as well as discuss how groundhogs are adapted to their habits.

Shadow or no shadow?  We made our shadow coins and predicted who would win.  We flipped the coin, graphed our results, and analyzed our data to see who the winner was!  The coins are included in our Read It Up resource.

Will he or won’t we?   We made this prediction the day before Groundhog Day!  Then, we watched a clip of Phil to see if our prediction was correct!  (On February 2,  you can just Google Punxsutawney Phil and find a link to a news video to watch!)

Of course, we had our snack!  We used a large brownie for the burrow, green icing for the grass, and a Teddy Graham for the groundhog!
