There are so many fun things to teach children about turkeys. Here are a few engaging ideas that will help you teach your kids about turkeys, how they grow, their anatomy, and more.


I love to include a wide variety of books in my lessons. I use some for read-alouds and save others for independent reading (when appropriate).

Below, I’m sharing a few of my favorite books about pine cones and pine trees. I find they’re perfect for introducing the life cycle of a turkey, increasing your child’s vocabulary, and illustrating important information.
