Thanksgiving Fun!

Monday, December 3, 2012

We spent the two days before our Thanksgiving break working hard!

To finish off our "Changes" unit, the students made coffee filter turkeys. They had to color the coffee filter using regular washable markers, then dip them in water and watch the change that occurs. We let them dry overnight and added a turkey body the next day. Then, they each wrote a story about turkeys. They could choose to write about how to catch a turkey OR how to cook a turkey. We got some very interesting stories!

We also made toilet paper tube turkeys. After reading "A Turkey for Thanksgiving" by Eve Bunting, we made these cute things. I hope you enjoyed them at home!

Last, we played a main idea/detail matching game with facts about wild turkeys. The kids really liked learning the new information.
