Have you seen the "Disguise a Turkey" project before? For a few years now I have done this in my room...and the students LOVE it! They get so creative in their projects and it makes such a cute display. But the project itself is more suited to the younger grades. So I needed to pump it up to make it more rigorous for the upper grades that I teach. So what did I do? I had the students write a persuasive piece to go along with it! Come on over to my blog, Teaching in Room 6, to see how I did it and grab the forms so that you can do it in your room too!
