Describing Turkeys

Turkey legs for language!  I had the materials and thought that this adorable Thanksgiving place setting idea by The Party Animal looked to be a quick and easy craft so I gave it a try.  

Instead of place settings, I made a describing activity to use with the 
Expanding Expression Tool.  

Students pick a leg and describe their word using the Expanding Expression Tool by Sara Smith.  Instead of filling the turkey legs with newspaper, you could fill them with the items indicated on the bag, prizes, or fun food!  
I filled mine with popcorn.  
You could even pop the popcorn in the paper bags.

Paper Bag Popcorn: 
              1. Put 1/4 cup popcorn kernels into a brown paper lunch bag.  
              2. Fold the top of the bag over and tape.
              3. Microwave until there is more than 3 seconds between 
                  popping kernels.
              4. Carefully remove and open bag.  

I hope your students enjoy this craftivity.  Feel free to send your pix to my Instagram and/or Facebook page.  I love hearing from you!
