How To Catch a Turkey

My Firsties and I read this cute book yesterday...
In the book it is the day before Thanksgiving, eight boys and girls take a field trip to a turkey farm. They are delighted and enjoy playing with eight cute turkeys but when they find an ax and ask Farmer Mack Nugget what it's for...they are shocked to learn that he plans to kill all the turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners! The children then come up with a clever plan to save the turkeys...

My Firsties were totally engrossed with the story...after reading it, they wanted to know how
Farmer Mack Nugget could have trapped those turkeys in the first place. Using Deanna Jump's
How to Catch a Turkey sheet we came up with our own traps...but my kiddos said they would only trap them to keep them as pets...how cute!
