If you’re looking for a little something to share with your students on Groundhog Day, I think you’ll enjoy this “flip the flap” craftivity.
It can be a simple card for little ones to make. There are 3 “Happy Groundhog Day!” greeting options, which are revealed when you flip the legs of the groundhog cover up.
You can also make a “Flip the Flap For Facts” booklet, with interesting information about Groundhog DAY.
As with all of my packets, I’ve included a full-color, teacher’s edition, so you can quickly and easily make an example to share with your students.
Make your teacher booklet and read it to little ones so they learn a bit about Groundhog Day, then have them transition to making the card.
There are also 2 black and white versions so students can make their own booklet.
So that you can differentiate your lessons, I’ve included an emergent reader option, packed with lots of Dolch sight words, as well as a preschool “trace the word & color the pictures” version.
There are 10 interesting fact pages with matching graphics, plus 5 optional pages for you to choose from.
Use all of the pages for your teacher’s sample, then pick fewer pages for your students’ booklets.
For quick printing, there are 2 “flip up” pages to a one-page template. The groundhog’s body is a full page. Be sure and check the PREVIEW to see lots of samples.
Besides the 3 booklets and card, I’ve also included a “Fun Fact” worksheet. Use this after you read your booklet to check comprehension. Children color the groundhog then jot down an interesting fact that they learned, or their favorite one.
Completed projects make a cute February bulletin board.
I’ve included a “Groundhog Day Fun!” poster for the center of your display.
There are also 2 graphing extensions to go along with the optional "question" pages.(See PREVIEW).
Because Canada also celebrates Groundhog Day on February 2nd, I included 2 pages with the alternate “colour” spelling, as well as a Venn diagram activity comparing our Phil with their Will, plus a photograph poster featuring both groundhogs.
There are several map worksheets of both countries as well.
If you studied Canada during your “Christmas Around the World” travels, this is a fun way to revisit those lessons.
So....you've covered non-fiction reading, a bit of science, some writing a dash of math, plus a smidge of geography all with one craftivity, which you can feature on an easy-peasy bulletin board!
Woo hoo for you!
A cute “go along” activity with this booklet, is my other flip the flap groundhog booklet which features interesting facts about groundhogs.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled Groundhog Day.
