The Great Turkey Race by Steve Metzger is one of my favorite stories to read leading up to Thanksgiving Break (2 more days, but who is counting?) This story is about three turkeys who all want to be Farmer Joe's special turkey. They come up with the idea of a field day to show Farmer Joe who the most special turkey is. They all want to win until they find out what really happens to the Thanksgiving turkey!!



**Spolier Alert!!** At the end of the story, the three turkeys escape the farm leaving Farmer Joe and Farmer Kate to eat delicious vegetable soup for Thanksgiving dinner. Wanting my students to use their imagination and prediction skills, I created a worksheet where the students can draw a picture of where they think the turkeys ran away to (I cannot figure out for the life of me how to upload it!).  I had some drawings of turkeys at the beach, some that ran away to a different farm, etc. Have fun with it and encourage creativity!
