PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It’s turkey time! Make an adorable turkey craft project while teaching your students how to research and write about turkeys.

Here is what is included in this unit:
Turkey Text Connections I've provided a list of fiction and non-fiction books about turkeys.

Turkey Terms Poster Teach your students the gender specific names of adult turkeys and their babies.

Turkey Parts Diagram I've provided a set of diagrams with labels for turkeys, including an activity page for the students to do.

All About Turkeys Research Chart Teach your students how to take notes as they learn facts about turkeys. Using a simple graphic organizer, students will write what turkeys “are” “can” do, “have” and “need”, and record an interesting fact. Make the chart interactive by gluing a liftable flap over the top of each box.

Informative Writing Students use the writing process to transform their turkey facts into sentences and paragraphs using the draft, editing, and neat sheet templates. I’ve provided rough draft, editing, and neat sheets with 3-guide lines for developing (K-1st) writers, and with single lines for more experienced (2nd-3rd) writers.

Craftivity Have students make a turkey craftivity to display written work (either the graphic organizer or paragraph).

These activities are aligned with K-3 Common Core State ELA Standards.
