Americans eat over 46 million turkeys on Thanksgiving! But every year there's one lucky bird that takes the national stage and receives a presidential pardon!
Keep your students thinking and writing all the way up to break!
This lesson includes two options:
This lesson includes turkey profile sheets of turkeys that have been pardoned. The sheets include the real name of a turkey, the year it was pardoned, and the president that did the pardoning. Each student will get a different sheet and will fill out the information and do a little creative writing about what the turkey will do once it is pardoned.
The lesson includes a blank turkey template where thinkers can create their own turkey that they would like to be pardoned. They may draw their turkey and fill in the information about the turkey. Thinkers will then create a letter president that tells about their turkey and explains why their turkey should be pardoned.
