Turkey Terms

Turkey TroubleTurkey Trouble by Wendi Silvano

After reading this delightful story, tell children that turkeys have different body parts than other birds do. Show them some pictures of real turkeys, including a turkey chick (a poult). You can find real turkey pictures and a list of turkey terms at http://www.kidzone.ws/animals/turkey.htm. You can also attempt to say the scientific name for a turkey while you are there! For help with that, go to a word pronunciation site.

What Do Pigs Eat?

My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza

After reading the book, ask children what real pigs eat. Help them to feed a stuffed pig by placing a “trough” beside the pig and handing out food to place in the trough. A food list can be found at http://www.keepingpigs.net/what-do-pigs-eat.My Lucky Day
