These activities are designed to accompany the book "The Great Turkey Race" by Steve Metzger. Activities can be adjusted to fit the level of students and the time available. The first activity is a guided internet research activity where students find answers to questions about turkeys and can think about whether the turkeys in the story could actually do the things described. In the second activity, students cut out and decorate paper turkeys and then try to make them "fly". A graphing activity is included that allows students to practice making a bar graph by charting how far the class turkeys "flew".
