This whole class activity is based on the book; The Hungry Thing. In the book the Hungry Thing asks for all sorts of food (but he uses a rhyming non-sense word instead.) It is the job of the reader/listener to figure out what real food the Hungry Thing wants. This activity can be used independently of the book.
In this activity the students are given cards with Thanksgiving food pictures and/or words. The teacher has a list of non-sense word rhyming words (like: gapples and fumpkin tie). The students' job is to figure out what the hungry thing wants.
