The turkey reminds
us of historical events that have shaped the history of North America
-- mainly USA and Canada -- it unites all people to be THANKFUL
for all the bounties and the harvest that the land has given and
continues to give. Help children
write thankful messages on the leaves templates or handprints. Just
print a word or
two-- I am thankful for: friends, food, family, pets, my country, my home, my teachers, my "child care
provider's name," etc.
Note each turkey craft will feature additional options for alphabet activities.
