Thanksgiving from the Turkey's Point of View
Try this classic writing assignment with your students, and they will love it! Have your students write a Thanksgiving story from the Turkey's point of view! First use the Turkey Planning Sheet to help students organize their ideas and think about the point of view of this story. Or, for those students who need a little more direction, use plan sheet B. The plan B worksheet also provides a great lesson on creating suspense!
After planning, have your students write the story. Use the self-evaluation sheet to help your students figure out what may need to be revised. Finally, have the students share their stories in groups or to the whole class. Use the Turkey Story Rubric to grade the stories! Have fun!
