Happy Turkey Day! (Almost)
What? You were expecting turkey?
Don't worry. You are not imagining things. THIS is not a turkey; it's a peacock, a very beautiful peacock. I get tired of seeing nothing but turkeys at this time of year. A peacock is a refreshing change, don't you think?
While you are waiting for that delicious turkey dinner, think about our peacock up there.
What do you know about this bird?
Is it male or female?
What is its name?
Is this peacock friendly?
What if we had peacocks for dinner instead of turkeys? : (
If the peacock could talk, what would it say?
Make a list.
On the left side, put FACT. List everything you know about this colorful bird. (Research!)
On the right, put FICTION and make up some fun facts about the bird.
Write a short story weaving fact and fiction.
AND HAVE A WONDERFUL PEACOCK-LESS DINNER!
