Groundhog Day is a fun, low-stress holiday for the elementary classroom.
Teach your students about the history of Groundhog Day using myGroundhog Day Worksheet. You will find vocabulary definitions, think and respond questions, and a fun tongue twister about woodchucks. (Did you know a woodchuck and a groundhog are the same creature?)
Visit Groundhog.org, the official website of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, for pictures, articles and Groundhog Day ideas submitted by teachers. Show your class the official promo video for Groundhog Day. Students will enjoy seeing the excitement of visiting Punxsutawney for that day.
