Yes No Questions for Thanksgiving
A Turkey for Thanksgiving Unit
Some examples of camouflaged turkeys:
A Turkey for Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting is one of my favorite class books to read during Thanksgiving. It is a book about a moose who goes in search of a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. It is an adorable story with a cute twist at the end. The lesson from this story is one of being thankful for friends. After reading the book, I always have my students do a fun writing craftivity. I first have students color/disguise a clip art of a turkey. The next step in the craftivity is to have students write a story about a turkey that runs away and camouflages itself into something so nobody can find it for Thanksgiving. I have had some really creative writing over the years. These also make great bulletin boards!
