Hi, Teaching Friends!
I love Groundhog Day at school. It's just a fun, one-day deal, with no great push to cover related content. There are lots of fun ways to connect science (animals, shadows, seasons) and a growing number of extremely cute read-alouds. Plus, the word "predict" can be squeezed into conversation numerous times during the day, which never hurts, right? :)
Here's a fun freebie - the latest one at my TpT store! Your students will be mini-math detectives as they evaluate numerical expressions. The goal of the elimination puzzle on each of the eight task cards is to use the clues to cross out three numbers. The remaining number shows where Mr. Groundhog's shadow is hidden.

Did I exaggerate? Not really. :) Chances are there will be more to come, too.
