Have your students write a Thanksgiving story from the turkey’s point of view. This is an excellent writing assignment for early or late November. You can add in lessons on voice, point of view, and suspense.
We provide two choices. Option one guides students in thinking through things in the way that a turkey would. For example, a turkey wouldn’t call a gun a “gun”. It may call it a “bang stick”. Option two provides prompts for students to write in a way that builds suspense. There is also a self evaluation and a rubric included. Hope you enjoy this fun lesson!
Happy Turkey Day!
