Tie Turkey – Make your own Albuquerque Turkey for your classroom. Cut out the body, head, and feet of a turkey and staple to a bulletin board. Have children bring in old ties from home and pin around the back of the body to resemble feathers.
Handprint Turkey – Have children place their hand on a sheet of paper extending all the fingers. Trace. Children turn the thumb into the head of the turkey and color the other fingers to look like feathers. Add legs, and there’s your turkey! You can also do this with paint. Paint brown paint on the child’s palm, red on the thumb, and a different color on each finger. Press firmly on a sheet of paper. Add legs and other details.
Same and Different – If you can find a copy of the book ALBUQUERQUE TURKEY, be sure to read it to your students. How is the book the same as Dr. Jean’s song? How is it different? You can download a teacher created copy of a book for this song from Dr. Jean's Happy Everything! CD by clicking on Downloads in the menu at the left.
