Groundhog Day is a holiday celebrated every year on February 2nd. It is a tradition that started in the United States, but it is now celebrated in other parts of the world as well.
On this day, people look to a special groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil to see if he can predict the weather. According to the tradition, if Phil sees his shadow when he comes out of his burrow, it means winter will last for six more weeks. But, if he doesn't see his shadow, it means spring is coming early. Oh yeah!
People often celebrate Groundhog Day by having parties and making predictions about the weather. It is a fun and lighthearted holiday that is meant to bring a bit of cheer and hope during the cold and dark winter months. With that said, we hope these free Groundhog Day grade leveled word lists and interactive lessons will help make your classroom festivities all the more fun and exciting!
And here’s a funny Groundhog Day poem:
On Groundhog Day, the critter comes out
To check the weather, there's no doubt
But if he sees his shadow, winter stays
Oh no, six more weeks of cold dismay
But if he doesn't see it, hooray!
Spring is coming, what a great day
We'll dance and sing and play some games
Until the groundhog's shadow fades
So let's celebrate this funny holiday
With laughter, cheer, and a festive display
We'll have a party, come rain or shine
Thanking the groundhog for his time
