Put some “Woo Hoo!” into studying place value, by creating a super-cute PVT (Place Value Turkey).
This is an especially fun activity for your students, and a nice alternative to worksheets; making it that “extra special something” you can do for the month of November.
Completed projects turn out absolutely adorable, and make an outstanding bulletin board or hallway display.
I’ve included 2 posters to help decorate.
You’re sure to get lots of compliments, as the results definitely have that “Wow!” factor.
The packet is very versatile, with lots of creative options for your students to choose from; which not only results in a nice variety of turkeys, but allows you to diversify your lessons.
These place value turkeys appeal to a variety of ages and abilities.
The versatility allows younger kiddos, as well as older students, to create a turkey that will have a one, two, three or even 4-digit number value!
Keep things simple for little ones and limit the number of pieces and options, while challenging older students to create a bigger value for their turkeys.
Be sure and check the PREVIEW for lots of samples. I’ve also included the directions from the packet, so you can see if it fits your grade level.
Once children have created their place value turkey, they figure out how much it is “worth”.
I’ve provided several worksheet options for students to complete, that helps break things down. Choose which one is most appropriate for your students. They are different enough, that you can actually do all of them.
There are also several whole-group activities for data collection and analysis.
Limited time? This makes a super-fun homework assignment, or another idea is to have students work with a partner or create one PVT in a small group of three, which will divide up the work.
Here’s a fun challenge: Give the small group a total turkey value, and see how close they can get to hitting that number.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a turkey-rific time strutting your place value knowledge!
