Groundhog Day

We missed predicting for Groundhog Day because of the snow. I was sad but decided we could do it on Monday. I read Groundhog Gets a Say by Pamela Swallow and Groundhogs by Chadwick Gillenwater. 

 Then we charted facts about groundhogs. We talked about what it meant if the groundhog saw its shadow (6 more weeks of winter) and what it meant if the groundhog did not see his shadow (spring would come soon). 

Next,  we made our predictions. We made observations about our graph. The children observed that... *15 students thought yes and 9 thought no *more people thought yes *they are not equal *both numbers are odd *24 students made a prediction 

 Next, we watched a video of Georgia's groundhog, General Beauregard Lee, make his prediction. He did not see his shadow! We colored, cut out, and sequenced the order of events for the groundhog too! 

 The last thing we did was our mystery picture! We made a groundhog!
