Turkeys are one of our little learners’ favorite things!
There are so many things to focus on during the Fall season, and one of our favorite subjects is TURKEYS! Students love talking about all the different things they’re thankful for or what they plan on doing during Thanksgiving break.
To bring the fun of turkeys and the Thanksgiving season to the classroom, we engage in fun activities like our Paper Bag Turkey Puppet Craft. And to learn new sight words, we practice with our Turkey Editable Sight Word Activity.
As we build on our science skills, students really enjoy learning about turkeys with our Turkeys Animal Study.
Our classroom is filled with everything turkey this time of year!
Because turkeys and celebrating the Thanksgiving season is a great way to get kids learning without realizing they are learning.
To connect turkeys with fundamental math concepts, I’ve created this Editable Turkey Addition and Subtraction Activity, so our kids can review their math facts in a fun, hands-on way!

Getting the Turkey Editable Addition and Subtraction Activity Ready
This seasonal editable printable is simple to prep. Once you have purchased the activity and download it, you’ll open the document with an updated version of Adobe. You’ll then type in the addition or subtraction facts your class is currently working on.
As your students are progressing and are more successful at these skills, or to differentiate for your students, you can add in higher numbers with more addends.
Using the Turkeys Editable Addition and Subtraction Activity in your Classroom
Students will start their turkey addition and subtraction game by placing all of the pieces on a table or the floor.
First off, we’ll choose a turkey with a number on the body. I find it helpful to encourage my kids to say the number on the turkey out loud. This student chose number 6.
Students will then sort through all the feathers looking for sums and differences that equal the number on our turkey bodies. Once all the feathers are gathered to complete the turkey, they can pick a new turkey and start again.
To switch up this activity, we can have all of the turkeys laid out, and then the students can sort through all of the addition and subtraction problems according to their answers.
There are so many various ways to implement this holiday-themed math activity and personalize it for your students’ needs.
If you have students who may need extra review or practice or younger kiddos, you can simplify this activity.
Providing these students with only the addition problems or only the subtraction problems.
You can also give them one addition problem and one subtraction problem at a time. Once these skills are mastered, you can slowly add in more.
For our littlest learners or students who need one to one correspondence review, you can easily adapt the turkeys into a simple counting activity. My son loves counting buttons and placing them on the turkey. You can also find little turkey or feather erasers or other Thanksgiving objects for them to count out.
Whether students are playing the addition and subtraction activity or showing off the mastery of this skill with their turkey-themed worksheets, they will be having a gobble-gobble good time!
