Groundhog Day is coming soon! It was always tough to fit into my schedule because the 100th Day of School always happened around the same time. I am collecting several Groundhog Day activities and ideas for you guys so that you can start plugging them into your lesson plans! Happy predicting!

Learn what Groundhog Day is! Read a Nonfiction Passage

This Groundhog Day flip book tells the students WHAT Groundhog Day is and why it is celebrated. So, after their fictional read alouds, students will grasp an idea of what Groundhog Day is. This will solidify their new knowledge. You can also read this passage first to give them background knowledge before reading their fictional stories.

Get Mathematical!

Groundhog Day is the perfect holiday for predicting and graphing. Predicting whether or not the groundhog will see its shadow is always a great math lesson for the students. Then, being able to test their theories is also quite fun for them using their data to compare.
