Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day everyone!
I was hoping to post this last night but I fell asleep in front of the TV (no joke) at 8:30!  Next thing you know, my husband is waking me up at 10:30 to go to bed!  Sorry!

This is such a simple and easy craft to assemble and have your students do independently for Groundhog Day.
If you read this post early enough and would like to do it, I have included everything below.

To make this cute little pop-up Groundhog, simply trace a large circle onto brown construction paper and draw a radius.  The students will cut out the circle and the radius.  Fold the circle into a cone shape and glue.
Colour the groundhog and tape him to a straw.
Attach poem to the brown "ground".
Mr. Groundhog simply pokes his head up from the ground while you are singing the song.
(I didn't write the song by the way! I have had it for years so I'm not sure who to give credit to!)

Click on the pictures to download.

I have even created a poem for you to use as a whole class of this song.
