Turkeys – A Lapbooking Unit


Whether you are studying turkeys because you want to focus on one species of bird or if it is because you want a fun topic to study around Thanksgiving, your students will love to create their very own turkey lapbook!

A little about ‘the turkey’: Benjamin Franklin would have preferred to have the Wild Turkey, not the Bald Eagle, chosen as the national symbol of the United States. Although the barnyard variety seems to be (according to some sources) lacking intelligence, the original wild form is a wary and magnificent bird. Wild Turkeys usually get around by walking or running, but they can fly strongly, and they typically roost overnight in tall trees.

What is a lapbook?

A lapbook is simply a file folder that contains a variety of “mini books,” foldables, and other material that cover detailed information about the lapbook’s central topic. A lapbook might accompany a unit study, elaborate on a book or serve as a guidebook or portfolio.

Creating a lapbook is one activity that will allow students to take charge of their own learning and creativity!
