The celebration of #GroundhogDay began with Pennsylvania's earliest settlers. They brought with them the legend of Candlemas Day, which states, "For as the sun shines on Candlemas Day, so far will the snow swirl in May..."
Groundhog's Day is a fun opportunity to teach preschoolers about light and shadow, plus there are so many cute props they can make to go along with fun poems and songs. There are even some cooking activities that work well for this day. I collected over 15 different simple Groundhog Day activities for preschoolers that can work in the classroom or at home.
