This was one of my favorite activities to do with my students each year. Our goal was to design turkey costumes to save them from The story:
I told my students that they needed to help America’s turkeys. Their job was to provide costumes so that the turkeys could survive the Thanksgiving holiday season.
Each student is a “costume designer,” and they must come up with a costume that will hide their turkey. The final design includes their turkey in a clever costume and a “Turkey Customer Testimonial!” This is a great activity for writing persuasive letters to human customers.
The package includes 9 pages:
- Student project description sheets;
- Student idea sheet;
- Rubrics for the project and the persuasive letter, and;
- Templates for the persuasive letter.
Your students will love Saving The Turkeys One Costume at a Time!
