Today we learned a little bit about groundhogs, and how they come out of hibernation at times during the winter. We heard that this year the groundhog did indeed see his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter...although, here in Utah we haven't had much of a winter so far, so maybe the next 6 weeks won't be all that bad. Also in honor of Groundhog Day, we spent some time exploring shadows. In centers this week, the kids made shadow puppets by outlining shapes on black paper and gluing them to Popsicle sticks. Today we used the overhead projector to see what kinds of shadows we could make with the puppets. It was some good, learning fun!
Enjoy some cute groundhog artwork, that also reflect some of the things we learned!
