What educators are saying

I used this activity with virtual learning. It is engaging and interactive. My students loved working with me to learn about shadows.
A wonderful and informative PowerPoint! My students really enjoyed the images and the interactive activities. Thank you!


Easily teach your young students about groundhogs, Groundhog Day, and shadows with this interactive PowerPoint presentation. It uses simple text, full-color photographs, and interactions to keep students' attention.

It also includes interactive quiz slides at the end to check student understanding. When a correct answer is clicked, the groundhog comes up out of his burrow and applause is heard. When an incorrect answer is clicked, an unhappy face with an "Oops try again" message is displayed.

The interactive quiz is divided into 3 sections (Show What You Know About Groundhogs, Show What You Know About Groundhog Day, Show What You Know About Shadows). They can be completed all at once or completed a section at a time.

Printable pages that coordinate with the interactive quiz are also included. Students can follow along and mark their answers as you go through the questions or complete the page as they go through the questions on their own. Perfect for checking individual student comprehension!
