A well-known tradition typically celebrated in Canada and the United States, Groundhog Day is observed by students of all ages.But fear not! Students worldwide can participate in the Groundhog Day ceremony this February 2nd, thanks to NUITEQ’s Global Content Department. Our teachers have created a variety of fun lesson activities to increase classroom engagement.
Groundhog Day originates from the belief that if a groundhog emerges from its burrow and sees its own shadow, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks. If, however, the groundhog doesn’t see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early.
Though there is no proven correlation, the tradition remains popular in classrooms around the world, and this year should be no exception!
