Groundhogs are rodents that like to burrow underground. They make deep holes in the ground to hibernate through the winter. When the groundhog appears out of the burrow for the first time, it is said if he sees his shadow, there will be 6 more weeks of winter! Let’s hope the groundhog doesn’t get spooked by his shadow this year.
Several other animals often use the abandoned burrows of the groundhogs. There are also other small rodents that burrow into the ground as well. One of these animals is the mole. If the winter is taking a toll on you try playing the Whack-A-Mole game. It makes alphabetizing letters fun! It also lets you play with furry little moles, which resemble groundhogs.
