While the craft in and of itself offers a fun addition to your Groundhog Day plans, you might also consider using the crafts for a fun graphing activity - like this one from Growing Kinders. Have your students base their craft on the following prompt - "Do you like warm or cold weather best? - using their answer to help them decide which variation to create, then use the dried project to cast their vote. You and your kiddos can then analyze the data once everyone has had a chance to present their preference {i.e. tally how many students like warm weather, how many students like cold weather, compose more/less statements for the results, etc}.
