Make teaching during Thanksgiving fun with this Turkey Glyph Activity! This low-prep activity incorporates multiple skills into one. Your students will enjoy creating this exciting turkey craft activity using a student friend step by step guide, while they also get a chance to practice their graphing skills. The perfect activity for your classroom this fall.

Step away from the basic turkey crafts and allow your students to practice math, reading, and writing all in one. This fall Thanksgiving-themed turkey glyph includes everything you'd need to allow your students to complete this activity and printables to go along with it.

Here's what you'll get in Thanksgiving themed activity:

  • Templates for glyph stencils
  • Templates for glyph pieces to be printed on colored paper or colored by hand
  • Printable glyph directions
  • Glyph survey
  • Graphing printables with question pages
  • Writing template

Your students will love learning all about their friends this November while they discuss the unique attributes of their glyphs with each other.

This entire glyph activity is extremely low-prep, and can be printed on regular paper and colored in, or printed right on colored paper for a quicker activity.

Take this activity to the next level. Just print the activities to go along with the glyph, and allow your students to complete the printables that help you incorporate WRITING too!


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Melanie H. says, "Such a fun and engaging activity for my students prior to the Thanksgiving break. They enjoyed having their 'own' turkey that represented them. I also loved how the activity was cross-curriculum."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Michelle H. says, "My students loved this activity instead of just writing what they were thankful for on paper. The loved the fun hands on turkey. Thank you."
