Product Description
In So Cal, a groundhog's shadow doesn't predict much...But Mojave Maxine at The Living Desert does!

The worksheet and passage were derived using the Mojave Maxine webpage linked below. There is a printer-friendly letter from Maxine, including the times she's come out in the past. Supposedly, the time she comes out of her burrow signals when Spring will start. Both the passage and the letter include great vocab words like brumation, hibernation, reptilian, insulated, and burrows!

Students can also guess which day and time Maxine will come out this year. Teachers can input a class guess into the website below for a chance to win a visit from a desert tortoise, plus gift certificates and and t-shirts! (Each student can also submit individually).
