What Time is it? It's Turkey Time!

Wild Turkeys nearly became extinct in the 1930's but times have changed and turkeys have benefited. Now turkeys are often found in fields and on the edge of the woods.

In this unit you will learn about Wild Turkeys, read turkey facts and stories, play some turkey games and do some turkey projects.

The turkeys will also help you learn to tell time. Turkey time, seasons, clocks, and the time to eat turkey.

So put on some feathers and practice your gobbling because it's Turkey Time...

Turkeys throughout the Year

Turkeys in all Four Seasons

The four seasons can be observed in turkeys. Did you notice that the male and female turkeys are together in the spring? They get together at this time in order to mate. Later on the female will lay eggs in an open field or on the edge of the woods. It would not be safe for turkey chicks to be born in a tree since turkeys are not adept at flying.

Can you tell what time of the year it is by observing turkeys?

During the fall you will see some flocks of turkeys are grouped by age and sex. The turkeys will be eating seeds in preparation for the long winter when food can be scarce. In winter one can often find Turkey tracks in clearings or on the edge of the woods.

Reading about Turkeys

Learn all about turkeys. When you see a turkey in the wild can you tell what time of year it is?

Jim Arnosky is one of my favorite authors and his book, All About Turkeys is no exception. I like to read books about turkeys with the children, write down lists of everything they know about turkeys and then try to spend so time outside watching the wild turkeys that nest and feed in our field. In winter we watch for their tracks and in early summer sometimes find turkey nests.

Wild turkeys were once abundant. They were hunted to near extinction but are now making a comeback.

Read all about wild turkeys.

It's Time for Wild Turkey Facts

Did you know that turkeys make many different sounds? If you listen carefully you may be able to decipher what the turkeys are trying to communicate. Listen to the recording made by the National Wildlife Foundation. Can you imitate those calls? During circle time, play What's the Turkey Talking About? Everyone closes their eyes and one child at a time imitates a certain call. Whoever guesses correctly is the next player.

Wild Turkeys are Back

Throughout North America wild turkeys are making a comeback. More and more people are experiencing the pleasure of seeing wild turkeys in their fields. It is a sight we look forward to each time we go home to New England.

Start Your Own Flock of Turkeys

Anytime would be a great time to read about turkeys and when you do you need to have a plush turkey to share the experience with.

These turkeys are for snuggling with when reading turkey stories. Having a flock of turkeys in the reading nook encourages children to read with their turkey friends.

It's time to pick out a flock of turkeys.

Spin the Feather. Tell the Time, - A Turkey Chanting Game: Learn to tell Time

Turkey
Turkey | Source

Make a Turkey Clock

Draw an outline of a turkey with a large round belly. Make a clock face on the belly. For the hour hand, make a feather shape as a spinner. This should be big enough for the whole class to see.

Turkey Time Song

Spin the feather as you sing and chant:

It's Turkey Time! It's Turkey Time!

Spin the Feather. Tell the Time.

It's Turkey Time! It's Turkey Time!

Spin the Feather. Tell the Time.

Now chant the hours by saying "Gobble for each hour."

Then say the time and start the chant again.

Time Thematic Unit - Turkeys learn to Tell Time

Turkey Clock

Skip Counting around the Clock

As Thanksgiving time approaches, children are learning to tell time. We practice counting by fives on the clock as we point to each number using a turkey feather. Five, ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five, thirty .... fifty-five; The Turkey says it's Ten O'Clock!

Then we go around the clock again for Eleven O'clock etc. until we have chanted two or three hours more.

Turkey Patterns

Coasters can be used to make patterns. Look for Turkey and corn coasters or ask parents for donations of coasters.

Children use the coasters to make repeating patterns and then record their patterns using letters such as: AABA or ABBA

Turkey Time Family Traditions

One year we ran across a very funny recipe for stuffed Camel in the local newspaper. We cut it out and read it at the table on Thanksgiving Day. It was so funny that everyone was in tears. We put that clipping away with the Thanksgiving place cards at my Grandmother's house and each year we bring it out and read it again.

As the turkey is cooking, snuggle up with your children for some story time. Talk about other Thanksgivings and the traditions you have in your families.

Make up some new stories and invent some new traditions to pass on in your family.

Read some old favorites like the following fairy tales.

Time to Take a Turkey Walk - Time to Take the Turkeys to Market

The Great Turkey Walk is a story about a boy who resolved to walk 1000 turkeys from Missouri to Denver, Colorado 900 miles down the road. In Missouri they cost 5 cents a piece but in Denver they cost $5. Will the 4th grade dropout become rich? My children loved listening to this story.

Turkey Egg Time - Egg Timer to Time all your Turkey Events

How long does it take to:

1. Count to ten

2. Tie your shoe

3. Jump 10 times

4. Draw 10 turkeys

5. Line up for recess

6. Write the numbers from 0-100

7. Write your name

8. Write all the spelling words

9. Put ten words in ABC order

10. Put the Encyclopedia in order

Use the Turkey Egg Timer to measure time.

This is an important skill needed to understand the concept of time and reading clocks.

Turkey Habitat

Set the sensory table up with some potting soil, Bird seed, some plastic turkeys and spray it with a little water. The bird seed will begin to grow as the children play with the turkeys in the meadow.

You might also add grass and weed seeds collected on a field trip to a nearby field.

Roosting Turkeys

Months of the Year

To stay with the Turkey Time Theme you might write the names of the months on each of the feathers, the hours on the clock or go for the Thanksgiving Theme and write things that you are thankful for.

Wild Turkeys in your Neighborhood - What time of year did you see the turkeys?

Wild Turkeys are making a comeback. In the 1930's they had become almost extinct. Now they are being seen more and more in fields and on the edge of the woods.

Have you ever seen wild turkeys?

Wild Turkey Time Song

by Evelyn Saenz

(To the tune of: The Old Gray Mare She Ain't What She Used to Be)

In the night turkeys sleep in the trees,

Up in the branches,

Hidden by the leaves.

In the night turkeys sleep in the trees,

Until the daytime comes.

In the day turkeys eat in the fields,

Munch on the insects,

Scratch up the seeds.

In the day turkeys eat in the fields,

Until the twilight comes.

Listen to the Sounds of Wild Turkeys - Time to Listen to the Turkeys

Set up a computer as a theater to watch this film of Wild Turkeys. The children can draw or write down their observations and add them to a class book.

Wild Turkeys in the Spring - Turkey hen and chick

Wild Turkeys are no longer Endangered

Wild turkeys are dependent on a varied habitat consisting of hardwood and mixed forests. In the 1800s, Vermont's wild turkeys were pushed to extinction due to extensive clearing of these forests and the spread of agricultural lands.

They were first reintroduced in 1969 and fortunately have made a tremendous come back. They are now widespread in deciduous forests.

It's Time to be Thankful

It's time to take a moment and think about all the things you are thankful for. Help the children write their thoughts on feathers and add them to the turkey's tail.

Children in an older classes love to come in to brainstorm and help write these words of thanks.

Thanksgiving Theme

Though Turkey Time could be anytime, we generally associate it with Thanksgiving so here is a Thematic Unit with lots of ideas, some of which could easily be added to the Turkey Time Literacy Bag.

Wild Turkey Song - Turkeys running away from Thanksgiving

Here is a delightful singalong from a songwriter in Maine. As you watch the video you will see pictures of wild turkeys of all ages. The tune is easy to pick up. Soon you will be singing along, encouraging the turkey to run...

      Great job on covering all things turkey. :) We have turkeys roaming with some cows in the field down the street from my house. Country living, heh heh.

      Well, you've produced a great lens on turkeys that makes me want to gobble it up. I hope you don't mind, but I'm linking to it from my turkey lens as well: http://www.squidoo.com/turkeys. I see you've already visited... but I think I've added more videos and bigger/more pictures from when you last saw it. Again, thanks for producting such an interesting lens... great for teachers and kids alike! 5-stars!
