This is a short writing piece to be used on February 2. It can also be used any day you need a quick writing piece!
On February 2, 1887, a tradition began in America called Groundhog Day. This activity contains a brief history of Groundhog Day and the groundhog who makes it all happen. Students are then asked to create a writing piece explaining their preferences for either a longer winter or an early spring.
Great for a bell-ringer or daily writing assignment!
