This activity is great for November writing! Super for a focus on descriptive writing, details, word choice, and/or adjectives.
Students are randomly given one of four kinds of turkeys. Each student colors the turkey. Then, they must describe their turkey in one of six writing prompts (you choose which works for your class). As a concluding activity, hang the turkeys and randomly read the description papers - see if students can match the descriptions to the correct turkeys!
Included in this product are:
- 1 page description with detailed directions on how to conduct this lesson in your classroom
- 4 blackline turkeys
- writing prompt papers (2 easy, 2 harder; 1 for each level that allows for paragraph writing and 1 for each level that allows for either 5 individual clue sentences or 5 phrases depending on what you need for your students, also included are 2 with dotted lines - one for longer writing and one for sentence descriptions)
- 1 bulletin board topper sign so you can easily display your students' work
My students love this project; I know yours will, too!
Thank you so much for looking! :)
