Groundhog Day is completely based on weather lore. Nonetheless, it can be used as a catalyst for learning about weather, predictions, as well as, the habits of winter animals.
Groundhog Day is mostly celebrated in the US and Canada and is based on a superstition held by the Pennsylvania Dutch that the if a groundhog emerges on February 2nd and sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter.
