Thanksgiving Craftivity - Thankful Turkeys
Get your students thinking about what they’re thankful for with this fun Thanksgiving craftivity.
This Thanksgiving resource contains two options for differentiation:
- One where students finish sentences by answering prompts (example: “I am thankful for my family because” …) (* the first six turkeys in this resource *),
- And one where students draw a picture of what they are thankful for and print the word underneath (* the next six turkeys in this resource *).
To save on ink, print the style that fits the needs of your students (or print both and let your students choose, or you can print three from one style and three from the other and alternate turkey panels). Students will finish the writing and coloring on each turkey (6 pages in total) before assembling the finished turkeys.
Completed turkeys are a fabulous way to decorate your classroom before Thanksgiving, and then can be sent home to make a beautiful table centerpiece for Thanksgiving dinner.
You have three different options for printing (you want your turkeys to be sturdy enough to stand on their own):
- Print on white construction paper
- Print on cardstock
- Print on regular paper, then glue onto construction paper and cut out around the turkey shape
For easier completion, be sure students complete each page BEFORE they assemble (cut and glue) the turkey. Younger students may require some assistance cutting out the turkeys (could be a great opportunity to pair up with another class).
This resource is included in my Holiday Craftivity Bundle which contains 10 different holiday themed craftivities to take you through the entire year.
