This "stitched" Thanksgiving turkey makes an adorable holiday display with his traditional little Pilgrim hat!
Your students are sure to love creating this turkey craft and using it as a springboard into their writing. A variety of writing as well as research opportunities are provided in this unit. Templates for original poems, short stories, a turkey research report, a turkey booklet, a turkey poster, and a turkey book report poster for students to complete are included in this download.
This resource is a great introduction into research projects for young learners. Many differentiated options for gathering and reporting information are provided.
Information can be recorded on one of the product templates, or students can simply record the information directly onto the turkey's feathers.
In addition, the turkey can be used to reinforce basic shapes like circles, triangles, and rhombuses (diamonds)!
