Students make a large turkey:
2 rectangles - legs
feathers - 8
wings - 2
face and feet - (I photocopied a reproducible and they coloured it in)
Then they had to write a paragraph convincing others not to eat turkey.
1st line - Introduce themselves (they are talking as if they were the
turkey) "Hi my name is Tom the turkey and I hear it is Thanksgiving next
2nd - 4th lines - They have to tell why people should not eat turkey (be
creative ) I had everything from them being infected with the West Nile
Virus to giving people gingivitis
5th line - Give an alternative food to eat and why it is SO much better than
turkey. (Be creative again)
6th line - Concluding sentence
These were very cute, made a nice display and parents loved them.
