Groundhog Day Classroom Activities

Today we went outside for Groundhog Day. We partnered up and traced our partner's shadow with a piece of sidewalk chalk. Next, we measured our shadows in non-standard units (groundhogs) and created a graphic organizer together to show what we learned this fun holiday!
If you don't have Cara Carroll's Groundhog Unit, you can snag it right now while it's on sale! We used her graphic organizers and Groundhog pattern for our measurement activity. I laminated the ground hogs and glued them to popsicle sticks to make them a little more fristie friendly for this activity.

Groundhog Day Shadows, there's a beautiful poetry in that. I wonder what it's like to live somewhere that you have sunshine?

Looks like we might have snow today.
