HOW MANY TURKEYS TALL AM I?

We used the Estimation Station to guess how many turkeys tall we are. The turkeys are from teacher supply store.

ART

THANKFUL PLACEMAT

We will use this as our place mat for our feast. The turkey is clip art I enlarged. I painted the kids hands different colors to make the turkey tail. In the upper right corner is their picture with their hands folded in prayer. Beside the picture is a little tag I made that says Happy Thanksgiving with the year. On the bottom right is a prayer:

Dear God,
Thank you for giving me
food, clothes, and a place
to live. Thank you for my
family and relatives.
Please help me be more
thankful on other days, too.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.


TOILET PAPER TUBE TURKEY

Start by tracing and cutting out each child's hand print. Children paint a TP tube in fall colors. When dry add googly eyes and a red triangle for waddle. Glue the hand print to the back of the TP tube. We added pom poms to the fingers and two clothes pins for legs.


DANCING CORN MAN

Accordion folded arms and legs make an adorable candy corn man.


DINNER PLATE

We used grocery store flyers and cut our favorite foods and then glued them on a paper plate.


MULTI-COLORED FORK TURKEY

Materials: paper plates, crayons, turkey head, scotch tape, and plastic forks.
I divided each paper plate into eight sections and then let the children color each section a different color. They then colored the turkey and glued it to the center of the paper plate. Scotch tape the plastic forks to the back of the plate to look like legs.


NATIVE AMERICAN HEADRESS

We made Native American headdresses. We used bingo daubers and stamps to make our ABCD pattern


NATIVE AMERICAN NECKLACE

We used died pasta and patterned a necklace.

LITERACY

SIGHT WORDS TURKEY

The children read the feathers and then glued them on their turkeys.

SCIENCE

GROWING INDIAN CORN

Indian corn - just place an ear in a pan/bowl/dish with a little bit of water and corn will start to grow in a few days.


Right before it was time to throw out the corn I let the children use scissors and "cut the grass". They loved this!

FAMILY PROJECT


First we read The Day Before Thanksgiving. I then tell our kiddos we will all get to disguise our turkeys and display them on our bulletin board. I send home a turkey pattern with instruction.
We get some adorable turkeys - err disguised turkeys.

Certainly Mr. Farmer will not be able to find any turkeys in our room!
