PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a writing activity that I designed to use around Thanksgiving. It does coordinate with the free Scholastic lesson "Disguise a Turkey." Students disguise the turkey so the farmer doesn't catch him for Thanksgiving dinner. Students write a story about how the turkey escapes being eaten. I have students randomly select a setting and a character that they must include in their story (in addition to the turkey).

Included in this file are:
- Printable Writing Topic Sheet
- Printable Planning Sheet
- Rubric
- Character & Setting Card Pages
- 2 blank writing papers for writing or for covers
- 2 lined writing sheets
- 6 specific award certificate
- blank award certificate

Students design a turkey before this lesson. (My students completed that at home. I used the disguise a turkey worksheet, but students were also allowed to be creative and make their turkeys 3-D. (Example photos are in file.)

After the turkeys were done, students completed this creative writing activity in school. In the story, students include the turkey they disguised plus a character and a setting that they pulled out of a grab bag.
The lesson time will vary depending upon whether students complete the story through draft form or through final copy.
