A numbers activity for Thanksgiving and the fall season.
The Turkey Numbers Collage is a fun math/art activity for counting, sequencing, and patterns with numbers and colors. Students will color and cut out the turkey body. They will number the turkey feathers, add pattern and texture, cut them out, and order them in the correct sequence to create their turkey.
Glue turkey body as shown in samples to a 12” x 18” sheet of manila paper with one line of glue in the center of the body (body only, not the head). This will allow students to slide the feathers behind the body, place them in the correct sequence and glue. Once all the feathers are in place, then glue the rest of the turkey body. Create pattern and texture on the feathers before or after assembly with markers or crayons. Add turkey legs and feet to complete the collage.
This product includes:
• 1 sheet with 2 turkey bodies
• 1 blank feather sheet for students to number as instructed (2 sheets per turkey - rotate one copy of the feathers so they point to the left for the left side of the bird and rotate the other copy so the feathers point to the right for the right side of the bird – see samples)
• 1 feather sheet, numbers 1 - 5
• 1 feather sheet, numbers 6 – 10
• 1 feather sheet, odd numbers to 10
• 1 feather sheet, even numbers to 10
• Samples - before and after sheets of turkey construction steps (sample feathers are printed on yellow and orange paper. Another option is to print feathers on white copy paper, use markers for numbers and texture, and then color feathers with crayons.)
Create an AB pattern by copying the odd and even numbered sheets on different colored paper.
• Standard Form and Word Form - students write 1 – 10 numbers and words (instead of using pre-numbered feather sheets)
• Standard Form and Word Form (Skip Counting) - students create their own skip-counting pattern (skip counting by 10’s shown in sample)
• Standard Form and Expanded Form - students create their own numbers (100 – 1,000 shown in sample)
