Turkey in Disguise Using the App PicCollage

Try a different way of teaching the activity Turkey in Disguise. Students can use the app PicCollage to disguise the turkey.

After reading the favorite read-aloud Thanksgiving book Turkey in Trouble by Wendi Silvano, students can complete the fun Turkey in Disguise activity. Turkey in Trouble sets up the activity with the turkey trying to disguise himself as another animal so he won't be eaten for Thanksgiving. I've seen classes product the cutest art projects using a turkey template. But, this activity is a little different. Students will use the app Pic Collage to create their own Turkey in Disguise.

How to Improve Math Skills With Real-World Activities

How many times have you heard your students say, "When will I ever need to use this?" Well, give your students an opportunity to work real-world math problems. If you have read any of my blog posts on project based learning, I love engaging students in real-life situations. And I truly believe you can improve math skills with real-world activities.

Teaching math using restaurant menus is a fun way for your students to add or subtract decimals (or money) and work multi-step word problems. Plus, when they go to restaurants with their parents, students can help figure out the bill!

Help your students improve math skills with real-world activities. Let students calculate orders, estimate, use a spreadsheet, and more. They'll learn so much! Your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students will fall in love with this project based learning unit. It's a great way for them to get real life skills in a fun, engaging manner. Click through now to see all the details. {first, second, third, fourth graders, PBL, real world, real-life, creative writing, fractions}
