It's about time, teachers, for Groundhog Day.
I have a quick primary grades project for Groundhog Day...
Make several cardboard templates of the groundhog. Have your students trace around the template on brown construction paper, cut it out, and add their groundhog's facial features. If the groundhog did not see his shadow, then ask your students to write that on his body.
If the sun was shining on our groundhog friend, ask your students to trace and cut out another groundhog on black construction paper. Glue it behind the brown groundhog to represent his shadow. Again, your students should write about that event.
Happy Groundhog Day!
You can get a copy of the template on Google Docs.
