Have you ever thought about what a turkey might say to prospective grocery shoppers right before Thanksgiving? With this Thanksgiving writing activity, that's exactly what students will do. They'll have to write from the perspective of a fictitious turkey who is trying to convince a grocery shopper to choose a different turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.
Depending on the planner and rubric you choose (two of each are included), students will have to think of two or three convincing reasons to explain to the shopper along with details supporting each reason. The rubric covers basic writing requirements– ideas and details, word choice, and conventions. You may choose to use a different rubric for your specific needs.
