Product Description
Groundhog Day Craftivity and Poem/Song

Directions, Poem, Patterns

This file includes:

★ Poem/Song

★ Directions

★ I have included large ground hogs, sun, clouds, shadow and snow scenes so that teachers can create their own version of the Groundhog poem/song on large chart paper and glue the large pictures to the poem.

★ You can make copies of the poem/song for students as well.

★ Students can choose from 2 ground hogs or draw their own. One can be colored. The other is life-like.

★ Cut out the ground hog, and glue or tape to towards one end of a popsicle stick. Be sure there is enough popsicle stick exposed. (Exposed area should be almost as tall as the cup you are going to use.)

★ Poke a hole in the bottom of a paper or styrofoam cup.

★ Glue the shadow to one side of the outside of the cup, but upside down so that when it pops up out of the cup, it can look down to see its shadow.

★ Cotton can be glued along the rim of the cup to give the appearance of snow around the hole.

★ Insert mounted ground hog on popsicle stick inside the cup, putting the popsicle stick through the hole in the bottom of the cup.

★ Now, there are 2 choices:
Hold the cup so that the ground hog will see his shadow when he pops up from the cup.

★ OR Hold the cup so that the ground hog will NOT see his shadow when he pops up from the cup. (One side of the cup has a shadow, and the other side does not.)

★ Choral read the poem, or sing it to the tune of London Bridge.

★ Students act out the poem with their ground hogs and cups.

★ Students can take a copy of the poem home and share their ground hogs with their families.

This packet contains one song/poem. However, I have another packet (sold separately) of 25 poems for students to act out after they create this craft.
