Turkey Feather Counting Activity

turkey feather counting activity

Let’s have some fun and count Mr. Turkey’s feathers. This colorful magnet tray activity is an inviting way for children to exhibit number sense.

Have children choose a wattle and identify it’s number (younger students may need help). Then prompt them to place the wattle and the corresponding number of feathers on Mr. Turkey. Instruct students to use one-to-one correspondence as they place their feathers on the bird; as they pick up each feather, they should say its number name.

Additionally, this activity may be used to reinforce color recognition.

I hope you find this counting exercise to be a useful addition to your fall curriculum.

MATERIALS USED: 

– A metal tray
– Craft button magnets (glue to back of the turkey)
– Feathers
– Our printable turkey and numbered wattles
– Googly eyes
– Tacky glue
