Product Description
This unit is an informational text research project to be completed with support from the teacher or individually, depending on grade level or ability. Please note the Lexile levels of the texts below:

“The Groundhog” 1150
“Groundhog Day” 1020

Both of these texts are accompanied by comprehension questions at three different levels.

“Can Groundhogs Really Predict Spring?” is a transcript from an Animal Planet Video. You may choose to show the video to your class or read the transcript as a listening comprehension passage.

Students may then use the articles, notes and questions to complete the writing task. The writing task is an opinion piece in which students must support their ideas with text evidence.
