Turkeys are always center stage at Thanksgiving dinners, but did you ever stop to think about it from the turkey's point of view? Well, this product has students do just that! It starts with a cartoon story about two turkeys talking, and they realize they are about to be cooked for Thanksgiving dinner and need to save themselves. Students will write a persuasive opinion essay stating reasons why they should be saved from Thanksgiving dinner. An assignment sheet is provided that can be printed for individual student use. A rubric is also provided and can be printed to assist with grading if desired. This is a fun and engaging activity that gets even the most reluctant writers excited and involved. Enjoy!
You can project the cartoon story onto a screen/wall by zooming out in Adobe. You can switch pages like in powerpoint by pushing page down on your keyboard.
