This year Groundhog Day is on a Monday. As a classroom teacher, I always loved Groundhog Day during the week. It’s just a fun little day to talk about traditions with the kiddos! The excitement is just grand for them.
This year I created a little Groundhog Day unit. You can easily weave a few things in tomorrow before the big weekend or even on Monday after Groundhog Day!
You can make predictions before Groundhog Day, on Friday.
Make a little hat to celebrate.
On Monday you can discuss the outcome. You can even make a little All About Groundhog Day book.
You can even discuss groundhog facts!
All of this can be found in my All About Groundhog Day unit. Do you discuss this holiday in your classroom? Do you teach the history behind the holiday? Do you squeeze in science and talk about shadows? I’d love to hear more!
