Groundhog Day History

$4.00

Description

Learn the history behind Groundhog Day, sometimes spelled Groundhog’s Day (there are actually many of these weather-predicting rodents!) with this fun February holiday associated with the Christian holiday Candlemas. Your kids can also analyze the data for ALL of Punxsutawney Phil’s predictions from 1887 to the present, and use it to make a prediction of their own.

There is even a graph for your kids to chart the data since they were born!

The information is presented in 3 ways:

  1. Slide Presentation
  2. Teaching Video
  3. Informational Text (Coloring Book)

The information is the SAME in each – use one or all as desired.

The slide presentation also contains the “prediction” materials. These are NOT included in the video version, as they are updated each year in the PDF as well as on the slides.

Inside Groundhog Day History and Predictions you also get:

  • 2 Printable Posters explaining under which conditions the Groundhog predicts a “long winter” versus an “early spring”.
  • A chart with Punxsutawney Phil’s predictions from 1887 to the present.
  • A graphic showing the number of times Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter, early spring or there was no record for easy reference.
  • graph the data worksheet
  • 2 coloring pages to use as “predictions” – let your child pick the one they want to color to represent their prediction.
  • Candlemas Copywork in Trace Over, Manuscript, and Cursive so you can choose which best suits your child(ren)
  • Instructions for shadow drawing art
