Books: Wake Up, Groundhog, by
a little Golden Book
Gretchen Groundhog, It's Your Day
by Abby Levine, and illustrated by Nancy Cote
Make groundhog mask:
Brown paper plates
or white paper plates painted brown
White construction paper
Black construction paper
Prepare paper plates outlining circles to be cut out for eyes.
Use hole punch to make hole in which to attach rubber bands to hook
behind ears. Make groundhog ears from extra paper plates or make
out of construction paper. Provide black button nose and
black paper strips for whiskers and white teeth (you may let
children cut out the teeth depending on time constraints).
Groundhog rhyme: (copyright 2004, by

Brown and furry,
Come on out,
I'm in a hurry.
Send spring our way
This very day.
So we can go
Outside to play.
