Can you imagine how you would feel if you were a turkey and Thanksgiving was quickly approaching? I have several students who put themselves in the shoes of a turkey...wait a minute, do turkeys wear shoes? Anyway, this is what they had to say:
Hey you! Yes, you! I know I'm a turkey. Okay, I know what you're saying, turkeys can't talk! But this is important. If you come in with an axe, I will chase you out of town! If you will try, I may get an axe and eat you! How would you like that? I khnow what you can eat instead....chicken! Eat chicken and that red sauce! It will taste better than me anyhow! ~Donald
I am a poor Thanksgiving turkey and many want to eat me? I should put some other turkey guards around me so that they couldn't get to me! I could pretend that I had the bird flu so that they would not eat me. Or that I was so big that your little mouth couldn't eat me. I could tell them that I'm not fresh to eat. I could also put a sign that says, Do NOT eat me!. I could hide or escape sot that could not find me. If they do get me, I will just bite them on their hand so that I could escape. ~Everardo
I will survive! You should not eat this turkey because I live in a garbage can. IF you try I'll slap you with a banana peel from my garbage can! You could eat fish instead. Put some vinegar on your fish. You could also eat deer. Deer have more meat inside of them than turkey, and you can use their skin. I only have feathers! You could also hang their horns on your wall! I'm just skin and bones! You could try to eat a fox or something like that! Besides, if everyone keeps eating the turkeys, I could become extinct! Yikes! ~Dylan
Well, I had to think twice before I ate turkey on Thanksgiving! How about you?
