Creating Our Very Own Turkey Trouble Pixel Art and PebbleGo Create Story! You Can Do This Activity With Your Kids Too, Friends.


I have a fun project to share that you can do with your students this week as we get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving.  This one includes one of my favorite holiday books, Turkey Trouble. I created this choice board to help students work through each step of the project. 

In this project, students will be listening to Turkey Trouble from the read aloud on Storyline Online that you can find here.  
They can also learn more about turkeys in the PebbleGo article about Wild Turkeys. It will also be helpful for students to use the pictures of the turkeys as reference when creating their turkey in the Pixel Art site. 
After the story, they will go to the StickTogether Pixel Art site to create their turkey in a disguise, like the one above. 

For this project, students will Generate a PDF from the Pixel Art site and save it to their device. 

Please note that with the new Pixel Art upgrade, teachers and librarians can also share their dashboard link and have the pixel art creations come to their account too.  You can sign up for the new free Pixel Art site here.

It is up to you how you save the images. 
We are going to use PebbleGo Create to create our Turkey Trouble book.  Since our students are saving their pixel art on their computer, it will be easy for them to upload into PebbleGo Create to write their page of our story. 

I can bring these together for a digital story and also print the pages to create a physical class book. 
Here is a copy of the choice board I will be using with the students.  You can add your own link to the PebbleGo turkey article and then share this with your students.  Remember to share the Published link. 

I can't wait to share this project with our students. Let me know if you do it with your students.  We can share our Turkey Trouble stories, friends.
