Product Description

It's more than just a turkey in disguise, a Thanksgiving escape room, a breakout, a color by number activity, a cootie-catcher -- it's a team-building journey for your students that requires almost no prep from you!

Here's how this pack works:

  1. It all starts with reconstructing a powerful quote from John F. Kennedy on giving thanks: "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
  2. Next, an unusual logic puzzle is presented -- your kids will be challenged to read carefully to figure out the rules of Thanksgiving dinner.
  3. The journey continues on to a fun crossword search puzzle -- students solve crossword-style clues to find the answers in a word search grid. There's a funny Thanksgiving riddle to solve that will make even the most jaded older kids giggle.
  4. And finally, there's the prize -- the lovely, lovely prize. Based on their answers to the other puzzles, students use the key provided to color in the turkey-themed Coloring Page. Cut it out, fold it up cootie catcher-style (instructions with diagrams provided), and there's a cool origami turkey as a prize. It's self-grading! If the students did not solve the other puzzles correctly, the coloring of the turkey will be clearly incorrect. And it's not obvious beforehand how to color the turkey - it may LOOK obvious, but it is not! It's a disguised turkey!

All of the answers are included, even a properly colored-in turkey. All you have to provide is markers or colored pencils and scissors. No physical locks or Google forms required!

Use in small groups for team-building.

Kids can even do the puzzles independently.

Every worksheet page is black and white so it's easy on your printer (there are a couple of color answer key pages if you want to project them and discuss as a class afterwards).

Your students will get a prize they can take home with them.

Teaches logic, vocabulary, ELA, social studies, and perseverance.
