In the spirit of giving thanks on thanksgiving, students will
create their own Thankful Turkey and take him home for
friends and family to record what they are thankful for!
Have students write one thing they are thankful for on the
first feather and have them take the turkey home to dinner
to pass around on thanksgiving.
On Monday after the holiday have students bring turkey back and discuss what was written on their turkeys. This is a great school/family project!
Includes directions and templates to create your own turkey with body, feathers, legs, head beak and wattle. If time is short and you want a quick easy Thankful Turkey, there is a pre made printable turkey to have student color and send home. The parent letter explaining the project is also included.
In addition to the Thankful Turkey project there are fun activities to fill your holiday week:
Thankful word work worksheet
Thankful friendly letter templates
Thankful idea worksheet
