I'm so excited to bring to you this Groundhog's Day Mega Bundle COMPLETE lesson plan. When I was teaching, these units were what I strived to create for my classroom.

Here's three things you need to know:

  1. It is easily laid out - materials needed are clearly stated.
  2. It's customizable - make it as easy or as hard as you want. You can challenge your gifted students while being accommodating to your students that need a little more support.
  3. It's engaging and fun - students will WANT to do this lesson and not even realize they are learning.
