They will be sharing their opinion regarding whether they hope the groundhog sees or does not see his shadow on Groundhog Day, and provide reasons to support their opinions. We continue to work in our new science unit titled "The Everchanging Earth." Students are learning about the many changes that occur on the earth's surface.
