The week of Thanksgiving is a tough one in classrooms. You don't want to begin anything new, yet you've wrapped up what you've been working on. The kids are off the wall ready for a mini-break and so are you!
This activity is great during this week. I have had much success with it! Here's how it works:
1. Turkeys have a reputation for being dumb birds. Debunk this myth by reading the article about turkeys.
2. Then have your students complete Tom Turkey's brainteaser challenge! I've included two pages of brainteasers...with the answer key, of course.
3. I also included reward coupons in the event you want to turn this into a contest. My teacher notes page tells you how I do this in my classroom. It's a lot of fun! I hope you enjoy this!
