The Groundhog Dramatic Play
Submitted by Tina
Have your children trace a groundhog pattern on paper and then a craft stick to make a groundhog puppet. Give children a piece of blue construction paper and a pre-made hill of green construction paper. Also give them yellow paper to make a sun out of. Have them glue only the sides of the hill to the paper. They can then act out the groundhog peeking over the hill. To see if he sees his shadow. You can use this poem to say while acting it out:

The groundhog poked his head up
And peeking all around
Saw his little shadow lying on the ground
The groundhog knew that winter
Would last for six weeks more
And so he pulled himself back down
Inside his little door.
