I created this activity with three things in mind: Thanksgiving, patterns and shapes all of which I am working on with my class.

Creating our Shape Turkeys

First, I gave each student a template of shapes. We identified each shape and reviewed patterns. Each child then colored the shapes they wanted to use for their turkey. The small circles and triangle shown below are for the turkey’s eyes and beak.

 They then cut the shapes out and showed me (or a friend) the pattern they had created. If the pattern was okay, they went on to the next step. If there was a problem with the pattern this was the time to fix it. Here are a few patterns my students created.

Once the pattern was complete, my students colored the turkey’s body anyway they liked. After it was colored, they cut it out and glued their shape pattern “feathers” on their turkey.
