Doll Dragon brought home the activity and it went very well with our weekly book. I made copies of the worksheet she brought home so we could all make our own turkeys.
The idea was to disguise the turkey so when it came to be Thanksgiving Day the turkey could not be found.
We brainstormed ideas that could hide a turkey the best.
I set out the craft supplies
- pom poms
- pipe cleaner
I left this activity very open. I tried to help when the dragons would get off topic and grab for something that didn't match their idea or have them think about how they were going to use the tool they were grabbing. After taking a minute to think about it they would either use it or put it back.
Doll Dragons disguise kept jumping between 3 ideas so she had things that matched all of her ideas.
When the crafting was all finished the turkeys were not turkeys anymore.
There was a golden dragon
and a ninja turtle
We hung them up for the month on our thankful wall. They were wonderful additions to our classroom.
