Summary(from publisher): Pilkey takes the holiday staple and recasts it as a Thanksgiving tale about a bus load of school children who feel sorry for a friendly batch of turkeys and save them from the farmer’s ax.
Accompanying Discussion: Talk about the holiday of Thanksgiving, including its origins. Ask students about their plans or their family traditions. Talk about vegetarianism and discuss alternatives to eating turkey.
Accompanying Activities: Have students trace their hands to design turkeys to color. Great instructions here! Give students a paper with a big plate drawn on it and ask them to draw and label what they like to eat for Thanksgiving.
