This project is designed and I used it in Kindergarten, First, and second grade. It gives families a fun way to interactive with their child at home. The child takes the turkey home and decorates it with mom, dad, grandparents, and/or siblings. I usually gave a weekend or week to complete the activity. Then hang them up outside the classroom for everyone to see.
At school the children bring their turkey back and describe the materials they used. For Kindergarten and First Grade this is a great project to use for oral retelling skills and verbal speaking. First and Second Grade children can write stories or poems about their turkey during writing time.
