Thanksgiving Project with Fourth Grade Buddies

We met with our Fourth Grade buddies in Ms. Senning's class Wednesday afternoon to work on a Thanksgiving Project.  Kinderbuddies and Fourth grade buddies created turkey glyphs.  A glyph is a type of data interpretation.  Students had certain rules to follow as they constructed their turkeys.  For example, if the student was a girl her turkey had a yellow beak.  If the student was a boy the turkey had an orange beak.  The number of feathers depended on the age of the student.  There were a number of other rules that students followed for their turkeys.  The turkey that each student created actually represented information about them and could be interpreted by others.  It was a lot of fun
working together on this project.  Happy Thanksgiving!
