Everyone is talking turkey in November. Most early elementary classrooms spend some time learning about the holiday and the traditional Thanksgiving turkey. This year, the Iowa Turkey Federation has a new resource for Thanksgiving lesson plans: a non-fiction children’s book featuring a 6-year-old and his family’s turkey farm.
The book is appropriate for a broad age range. The text at the top of each page, from 6-year-old Adam’s perspective, is for younger children, while the in-depth information at the bottom of each page is directed at older students and adults.
