I always love doing procedural writing… but a procedural writing activity that lends itself to STEM is the BEST! Reading the book How to Catch a Turkey by Adam Wallace & Andy Elkerton is the perfect starting point for this fun and engaging project-based learning Thanksgiving activity.
The kiddos love being creative and designing their turkey trap.
Then it’s time to build! Provide a range of craft supplies like pipe cleaners, cardboard boxes, pop sticks etc…
Encourage the kiddos to talk about how they will trap their turkey and catch it before they begin writing their procedure.
