List of FREE Printables and Activities for Groundhog's Day

Every year the groundhog comes out on a cold morning in February to prognosticate. . . . predict the weather for the rest of Winter.  Will we have 6 more weeks of Winter???  If he pokes his head out and sees his shadow, we have 6 more weeks of Winter.  If he pokes his head out and does not see his shadow, Spring will be early!  I always thought that was backward for some reason.  Seems like if the sun is out and he sees his shadow, Spring should be early!  But, what do I know.  I'm not a groundhog. When we were in Punxsutawney one time for groundhog's day, we got this picture.  So there you go!

Here's a funny thing about groundhogs. . . they can also be known as whistle pigs because of the high screeching sound that they make.  Also, another fun fact:  They are actually considered large ground squirrels.  Although they are also called woodchucks, they don't actually chuck wood.  So, how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?  Who knows?!?  Since they can't actually do it, we'll never know.

What I do know from an experience at a campsite is that they are curious little creatures, getting into stuff the way you think a raccoon might.  And they apparently love carrots.
