Groundhog Feeling Picture

Color Sheets: Here is free sample of a groundhog coloring sheet.

 

Groundhog Song Book: Print in booklet form 1/2 page or quarter page to make this book smaller. Sing the words to the tune of "Itsy Bitsy Spider". 

Groundhog Art Project: Shrink the groundhog coloring sheet to 2 per page. Have students color and cut our their groundhog. Attach it to a popsicle stick. Them place your popsicle stick with the groundhog on the top in to a disposable cop (styrofoam and paper work best) to become the "home" for the ground. Push the stick through the bottom of the cup and hold the stick from underneath the cup. The students can then move the stick up and down to make the groundhog pop in and out of his hole.
