Family Turkey Project

One of my favorite Thanksgiving activities of the season is the Family Turkey Project. In the assignment students are given a blackline master of a turkey and asked to decorate it with their families. I believe the original copy came from a book from Teacher Created Resources called
 Thanksgiving Thematic Unit. Below are some of this years turkeys.

I love the pink feathered turkey! The sky and clouds are made from felt.

Rainbow feathers and foam stickers decorate this one!

M&M's made this turkey decorative AND delicious!

This turkey is made from dyed macaroni probably found in the pantry.

This turkey includes macaroni, cheerios, beans and seeds.

This turkey is made from foam pieces and macaroni!

I found the pattern online from Mrs. Nelson's Class.
You can even print out her letter to parents that explains the project.
