Groundhog's Day


This morning we listened patiently to hear what Wiarton Willie's prediction would be. Yesterday we each made our own prediction about what we thought Wiarton Willie would predict. When it was announced that Wiarton Willie did not see his shadow and that spring was on it's way many student shouted in excitement. Since we have been discussing probablity in math it was also a great opportunity to discuss the concept of likely versus not likely. We talked about shadows and how it takes a light to make a shadow. Since we woke to a cloudy day we thought it was likely that Wiarton Willie would not see his shadow.

Hooray for spriing!
