Groundhog Day Prediction Activity for Kids

kids' activities

With winter in full-swing, Groundhog Day is a time to celebrate the season and find out if it will continue. Whether you’re completely into the winter weather or you’re hoping for an early spring,¬†Punxsutawney Phil will make his appearance and his predictions. Help your kiddo to mark this day with a Phil prediction chart. This is a fun-filled way to celebrate the day, learn about history and build basic skills (such as making comparisons, counting and graphing).

Materials You’ll Need

  • Poster board
  • Markers or crayons

How-To Steps

  1. Position the poster board vertically.
  2. Write the years, starting with the present one, one the left side.
  3. Draw a line vertically down the poster board, separating the years from the rest of the space.
  4. Research Phil’s predictions for each year that is written on the chart.
  5. Write “E” for early spring or “W” for long winter next to each year, based on Phil’s predictions.
  6. Draw another line separating the letters from the rest of the poster board.
  7. Research whether Phil was correct, or not, for each year.
  8. Write “Y” for yes or “N” for no in the next column. This notes whether Phil’s predictions were correct or not.
  9. Make comparisons. Ask your child to count how many times Phil’s predictions were accurate and look for patterns in the numbers.
