anything besides turkey!" This has been our writing/Thanksgiving activity for the past couple days. The kids LOVED it! The ladies at Dishing It Out gave me the idea.
I searched online for a turkey outline that fit our topic and THIS ONE hit the nail on the head! So we got our supplies out and were ready for action!
First, we brainstormed other foods that people could eat instead of turkey. The kids were coming up with some really fabulous ideas! Then, they decorate their turkeys. They cut them out and glued them to a large piece of construction paper. Next, they took a piece of printer paper and used it to write the names and draw illustrations of their different foods. Finally, the students cut out and glued the labels/illustrations around the turkey.
Here are a few of the final products:
They cracked me up! Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends! And remember, you don't HAVE to eat turkey! ;o)
