    When I taught second grade I gave the children a profile turkey pattern showing just the head and trunk and wing printed on brown construction paper. I also gave them precut, narrow, brightly colored, rectangular strips of contruction paper for feathers which they shaped into a point at one end with scissors, and on which they made slanted, parallel cuts on each long side of the rectangle and on the pointed tip. We wrote I AM THANKFUL FOR on the body of the turkey, and after writing things they were thankful for on the
    chalkboard, the students wrote the things they were thankful for on their feathers, one item on each feather.
    Here is a link to a site with some cute Thanksgiving crafts, and links to activities for other November holidays and holidays for other months of the year.

    The Enchanted Learning site also contains Thanksgiving craft ideas.
