Who wants to teach a formal lesson or try to give notes or a test the day before Thanksgiving break begins? No one! If you need a Thanksgiving lesson that incorporates Science or is something besides the pilgrims and Native Americans, here you go! Give each student a copy of the turkey and the directions and let their imagination run wild. Students decorate their own turkey in order for it to blend in somewhere in the classroom. They might color and pattern it a certain way to blend in with the floor, etc. Hide the turkeys around the room and go on a scavenger hunt to find them.
