How to Celebrate Groundhog Day with Kids

Celebrating Groundhog Day can be exciting and educational for kids of all ages! You can capitalize on their excitement with lessons in Groundhog Day folklore. Introduce your students to the famous Punxsutawney Phil and his weather-predicting abilities. 

Talk about the folklore behind Punxsutawney Phil and the Groundhog Day celebration with great books like The Great Weather Diviner: The Untold Origin of Punxsutawney Phil by Rob Long. It’s a fun story that will help your students understand how folklore can be used to explain events in nature.

Then, gather students together to watch Punxsutawney Phil’s virtual appearance for a memorable experience in the classroom. Celebrate the occasion with your favorite snacks. Then, extend the lesson with my favorite Groundhog Day activities, printables, and books to read aloud.
