Teach the standards in an engaging way! My students complete this writing project every year before Thanksgiving and year after year they all reflect that it was one of their absolute FAVORITE writing projects they completed that year.
In this project, the students will take on the perspective of a turkey around Thanksgiving time and try to persuade Americans to spare their life.
