This bundled set of games contains 10 PowerPoints that each practice a different rhythmic element.

In the game, the class as a whole team or as small teams, will choose turkeys from the main slide. Behind each turkey is either a rhythm or a Thanksgiving Dinner item. If they pick a turkey that is hiding a dinner item, they earn that food for their team. If they pick a turkey hiding a rhythm, they must read the rhythm. Included are food tally cards and directions for play.

The ten games included focus on:
1. quarter-two eighth (ta ti-ti, etc)
2. quarter rest
3. halfnote (ta-a, ta-o, etc.)
4. four sixteenth notes (tika-tika, tiri-tiri, etc)
5. eighth-two sixteenth (ti-tika, ti-tiri, etc)
6. two sixteenth-eighth (tika-ti, tiri-ti, etc)
7. eighth-quarter-eighth (syncopa, ti-ta-ti, etc)
8. dotted quarter-eighth (tom-ti, tam-ti, etc.)
9. eighth-dotted quarter (ti-tom, ti-tam, etc)
10. dotted eighth-sixteenth (tim-ka, etc.)
