Get Creative with Coding this Thanksgiving

As you sit down to your Thanksgiving dinner, do you think about all the work that goes into making that meal? Someone had to cook the food, buy the food from the store, ship the food to the store, and–before any of that can happen–Farmer Wyatt needs your help to catch his escaped turkeys!

Your students or children can make this fun game about helping Farmer Wyatt catch all the turkeys in time for Thanksgiving. This activity comes with step-by-step instructions to make it easy for kids to program and customize “Turkey Trot.”
