Your turkey has escaped! You must takedown your turkey to eat it for Thanksgiving! This Turkey Takedown game challenges students to use their language skills to acquire all the pieces (5-feathers, legs, wings, body, face) of a turkey. Each student needs to takedown their turkey by getting each part of the turkey. In order to acquire the body part, the student must answer a language question. Here is how you play the game:
1. Print all pages. Laminate and cut apart all materials.
2. Shuffle cards and place them face down on the table.
3. Students take turns drawing a card from the top of the pile. They must then answer the language question on the bottom of the card. Each body part of the turkey coincides with a different language task. For example:
feathers - multiple meaning words, legs - antonyms, wings - synonyms, face/head - part to whole, body - categories
4. If you find the wild turkey card, you are able to use it in place of any body part. However, you must name which body part you are using it for when you draw it. If a student says it will be the "wings" and they draw a "wings" card on their next turn, they can't change the wild card.
5. The first student to completely takedown their turkey and assemble a complete turkey is the winner!
