Groundhog Day Fill-in-the-Blank Answer Key

Fill in the blanks in the passage with words from the word bank.

Every February 2, crowds gather at Gobbler's Knob, in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Burrowed inside his heated simulated tree trunk, a groundhog, named Punxsutawney Phil, is about to step into the limelight at about 7:25 a.m. once again. The gates open at 3:00 a.m., followed by live entertainment, music, and a pre-dawn fireworks display that helps to ignite (hopefully not literally!) the crowd gathered in anticipation of Phil's forecast. The awe-inspiring fireworks are set to lively music, which is just what the crowd generally needs on a cold rural Pennsylvania morning. Phil makes the most celebrated weather forecast of the year, usually around the crack of dawn. Has spring sprung when Phil emerges from his burrow and doesn't see his shadow? Or, should he scurry back into his burrow for six more weeks of winter weatherif skies are clear and fair?
