Groundhog Day
Predict and Graph


Talk with children about what they think will happen on Groundhog Day. Explain that the sun must be out in order for the groundhog to see its shadow; if it is a cloudy day, the groundhog will not see its shadow. Give each child an index card. Let children predict what they think will happen on Groundhog Day and draw a picture on the card to show it. Collect the cards and place them in two rows -- one row above the other. Invite children to count cards and make more/less comparisons. Give the graph a title and display it on a bulletin board. Then, on Groundhog Day, see which students predicted correctly.
