Groundhog's Day is fast approaching. Get students excited about this yearly tradition that dates back to the 1800's. I have included several fun writing activities. Students can make a newspaper, apply for the talent show, create a flyer, and write about what happened to Phil as they invent a new way to tell when Spring will arrive. This writing activity could be used for multiple grade levels. I have also included a bonus graphing activity. If you like the product check out my store for more great products.
