Groundhog Poems

During our groundhog project we researched facts about groundhogs

and wrote creature poems about groundhogs.  Here are the poems we wrote

and pictures we painted.  This page may take a minute or two to load,

but it's well worth the wait!


This is the format we used to write creature poems.

Line 1---Name the creature.

Line 2---Use a least 4 words beginning with the creatures name to describe what the creature sees.

Line 3---Use at least 4 words beginning with the creatures name to tell what the creature eats.

Line 4---Use as many words as possible that begin with the creatures name to tell an interesting fact about the creature.
