These math activities give students an opportunity to not only do the math but also provide a written response and have a little bit of cut and paste fun along the way.

For Thanksgiving, we only have a 2 day week. I like to do writing activities during these 2 days. We did a narrative story, a persuasive writing, and a descriptive writing.
For the narrative story, I gave the students the prompt "Pretend you wake up on Thanksgiving morning and you are a turkey This was by far the best writing they have done all year!!
When they finished their writing, the colored turkeys to paste around the paper. You can check out our Scaredy Cats that were very similar. For the persuasive writing, they had to choose to have Tom the Turkey or Pat the Pig for Thanksgiving dinner. They had to persuade me to want their choice for dinner.
This was a great time to explain why we should use a variety of descriptive words instead of just using good and bad. Finally, for the descriptive writing, they had to create their own recipe for a turkey.
The ideas ranged from chocolate turkey to a fruit turkey recipe. They glued the pages onto construction paper to take home to their parents. All of these ideas are in my 21 page Thanksgiving Writing Packet.
