Let's see if you have understood what goes around the Groundhog Day...

Quiz 1

Read this poem. It has got a Scottish origin.

As the light grows longer

The cold grows stronger

If Candlemas be fair and bright

Winter will have another flight

If Candlemas be cloud and snow

Winter will be gone and not come again

A farmer should on Candlemas day

Have half his corn and half his hay

On Candlemas day if thorns hang a drop

You can be sure of a good pea crop

Now, let's play and have fun...

A Word Search

A Game
