I've been making this pine cone turkey craft since my very first year teaching! Sometimes, I get lucky and I have a student who has a "pine cone tree" and is able to bring them in for the class. I usually buy the scented pine cones on discount after the holiday season and save them for next year... or I'll buy them for our house and bring in my old ones that have lost their scent.

9. TURKEY TROT
Our "Turkey Trot" number sequence turkey craft and game was another classroom favorite! We sure did enjoy trotting down the life size number line! First, a student rolled a 6-sided or 10-sided die. Then, he/she stood by the number that was rolled. We practiced counting on to 20, as the student trotted on down the number line! Read more about this craftivity... here!
