PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A furry little rodent crawls out of its den, is scared by its own shadow, and that means we'll have six more weeks of winter? Sounds like silly superstition, doesn't it? But several parts of the Groundhog Day legend do in fact have a basis in science and careful observation of nature:

This package approaches Groundhog Day from these perspectives:
*Astronomy
*Animal Behavior Science
*Meteorology

This package is everything you need to present a fun, effective and memorable program for your elementary students! This package includes:

*A 12 page engaging Power Point presentation. Each page possesses
very attractive transitions and animations that make this product a powerful
tool when teaching visual students.

*A simple, printable, outline, two page guide to the "Groundhog Day"
presentation. Print off one copy per student as a "take home" item. Place in a
three prong folder.

*Printable, coordinated, folder labels

*Groundhog coloring sheet - Most students love a coloring contest and it keeps
the subject active in their minds for days longer!
