Calling all cooks......
Have you ever asked your students about cooking a turkey?
Go ahead..... ask them.... and then you'll fall over laughing.
Most students think you cook a turkey in an oven set to 15 degrees for only 30 minutes. If only.....
Every year, my students write a recipe for a Thanksgiving turkey. The less they know, the funnier the directions turn out to be.
My students write a rough draft on notebook paper. I edit them before they write a final draft on "fancy" stationary I created.
Afterwards, I adhere it to brown construction paper and laminate. I don't laminate a lot of things, but these are too cute to pass up! Or, you could collect all the final drafts and create a class book titled, "Our Turkey Recipes."
