Are you looking for something for your students to do this Thanksgiving? This activity is a great way for your students to show their gratitude while having a little fun!

In this activity, your students will cut out a turkey and it’s “fan feathers.” Then, each student will write 4-5 things he or she is thankful for on the fan feathers and attach it to the turkey either by gluing it or by a brad. When assembled, it will create a cute bulletin board display.

  • Some fan feathers say “I’m thankful for…” while others are blank.
  • Some fan feathers include lines, while others are blank for students to use their artistic creativity.
  • There are two different turkey bodies to choose from.

    Cute turkey. Easy to use. My students loved writing about what they were thankful for on the feathers.

    My students thoroughly enjoyed this activity! We glued the feathers on instead of using a brad, and I put them on a bulletin board outside my room. I used orange, yellow, and white card stock for the feathers. Beautiful and meaningful! Thanks!
