Turkey Trouble, where a poor little turkey does not want to get eaten for Thanksgiving. Throughout the story, the students see the turkey dressing up in different disguises to hide from the farmer who is trying to cook him for dinner.
I then explain that the project we will be doing will be to dress up a regular turkey to escape being eaten for Thanksgiving! There are multiple extensions in this unit, such as graphic organizers, a writing activity, and a math connection that you can use with your class when the turkeys come back!
I hope you love this idea as much as I do! It's always so fun to do for Thanksgiving!
