How much do you and your kids know about turkeys?! This quick worksheet might come in handy as we approach Thanksgiving here in the U.S. This turkey printable has a few facts:
- Turkeys lived almost ten million years ago. There are 6 species of wild turkeys. It is estimated that there are 7 million wild turkeys.
- The male turkey is called a tom.
- The female turkey is called a hen.
- Baby turkeys are called poults and are tan and brown.
- Turkeys can see in color.
- Male turkeys gobble. Hens do not. They make a clicking noise.
- About 46 million turkeys are eaten each Thanksgiving.
- The heaviest turkey ever raised was 86 pounds, about the size of a large dog.
Plus, there is a quick matching activity – matching some (edible) birds with their eggs. There is just one page, but it’s free to download! 🙂
