Groundhog Day is almost here! I always think fondly of February 2nd because it was my kindergarten teacher’s birthday. All these years later I still think of her every year on Groundhog Day. To celebrate this year, I made this fun Groundhog Day Word Search Puzzle.

The Groundhog Day Word Find features 23 words all related to this somewhat unusual holiday. The banks, post office and schools are all open, but it’s a holiday nonetheless as we all wait to see if the groundhog sees his shadow when he emerges from his burrow. Legend has it that if he sees his shadow we’ll have six more weeks of winter, but if he doesn’t then spring should be arriving early.
Groundhog Day can be a fun day to study folklore, folktales and legends and it is also the perfect time to study weather and the seasons. For our Groundhog Day word search we have included words a few weather words such as cold, cloudy, forecast and spring, animal words including mammal and rodent, and words related to Groundhog Legends like Punxsutawney Phil, prediction and sign.
You can print the Groundhog Day Word Search Puzzle HERE and then be sure to also check out our Groundhog Day Craft Activity where kids can make their own groundhog that sticks his head up out of the ground to look for his shadow!
