Why learn about turkeys?

The material is relevant. Students are seeing Thanksgiving preparation in their homes, at the store, and on TV. Typically, your students will already have some background knowledge about turkeys – eating turkey at Thanksgiving dinner, seeing them on a farm or in the woods, and their symbolism associated with Thanksgiving. Use that to your advantage in the classroom!

Non-fiction texts are engaging. It has been my experience that children LOVE to learn factual information. Learning about turkeys this time of year is a natural way to learn about life cycles, parts of a turkey, habitats, and how they behave in the wild. Kids will eat it up! (No pun intended!)
