Groundhog Day Activities
Most of the things that I use for Groundhog's day are copyrighted and I am not able to include. I have listed some of the ideas that we use in our classroom.
Ideas for Groundhog's Day
1. Watch CNN with your class to find out if Mr. Groundhog sees his shadow.
2. Check the newspaper and have the children bring in pictures of Mr. Groundhog.
3. Shadow Hand Plays Use a light color background and use an old project or a flashlight. Turn off the lights to make the room dark. Make shadows!
4. Make an animal poster. Talk about where animals live. Divide class into four groups and have children draw pictures of animals that live: on the ground, off the ground (birds, sloths, etc.) under the ground, and in the water.

"He's gone upstairs,"
But shadow or no,
Who's that sleeping
On February second,
Seeing no shadow
