Had some troubles uploading this before and it finally worked. Sorry for the great delay.
Going along with graphing, I introduced glyphs to the kids. Glyphs are an innovative way to collect and represent data. Many times glyphs use pictures or objects to represent the data. You can find glyph outlines online or in books. Over the weekend I created a groundhog glyph to complete with the kids as a wrap up from graphing and to celebrate the holiday. The kids had a blast making and decorating their groundhogs.
We ended the lesson with the true definition of Groundhog’s Day. The groundhog did in fact see his shadow so there will be 6 more weeks of winter. As sad as that is, these groundhogs turned out really cute.
