Turkey, Turkey


Give each child a five-inch circle of tan, brown, or black paper and a three-inch circle of yellow paper. Have students paste the smaller circle onto the larger, overlapping the edge slightly. (The larger circle represents the turkey's body; the smaller circle represents its head.) On the yellow circle let students draw eyes and a nose. They can also paste on a red triangle for a wattle. Finally, invite students to paste dried leaves onto the larger circle to create "tail feathers."
