Thanksgiving Math Activity & Craft | Disguise a Turkey


Printable and Digital Thanksgiving and Fall Math Activity

This Fall and Thanksgiving math activity lets students shop for costume parts to disguise their own turkey! Students will practice counting coins, solving word problems, addition and subtraction, and working within a budget - AND they'll barely know they're doing all of that math because this is such an engaging activity! This includes a printable and digital version in Google Slides!


Teacher Tips and Instructions for teaching this pack

Counting coin task cards: use as an informal assessment to place students for the rest of the project

Disguise Shop: students help out turkeys in the store while shopping for their disguises. The included recording sheet includes thought-provoking questions that will have students counting coins, adding/subtracting money, and problem solving.

Turkey Disguise shopping: Differentiated AND editable sheets are offered (you can set your own prices!). Students will shop for their own turkey disguise on a budget (given by the teacher) and add/subtract money accordingly. Extension suggestions are included for this activity!

Disguise a Turkey: After students have done the math to shop for their disguises, they have fun putting it all together!
