Kindergarten Thankful Turkeys

Kindergarten is creating a Turkey drawing.  This is a guided drawing.  I show them the steps first so they have an understanding of how to draw a turkey-pointing out the shapes that I use as I go.  Next, we draw it together step-by-step creating our own unique turkeys.  Even though I show them the steps and guide them through the drawing, all of our turkeys look different.  In addition to the turkey, we talk about a horizon line and what it is.  The students draw the horizon line to show that the turkey is standing on the ground rather than floating in space ;)

During the next class we paint our turkeys using tempera paints.

Here are a few of the finished turkeys:
