Get your students to talk turkey!!  Here’s how to do a critique:

The “Turkey Token” activity is used as an aid to having a critique.

Each student will get one of each token. Only do 2-3 tokens with young students. 

Have the turkeys lying on desks or somehow displayed. Give students a chance to walk around the room and give a token to a turkey that they think did a good job in the area described on the token. Encourage students to give tokens to any turkey (not just the best) they would like to discuss. 

After the tokens have been given out, go through each category and ask for 2-3 students to tell which turkey they selected and why.


Use How to Draw a Turkey to bring fun, hands-on activities to your students to help build drawing and art concepts!
