Students in Michel Cole-Bailey’s third-grade classroom at South Warren Elementary School talked turkey as part of a Newspaper In Education Literacy Program activity last week.

The classroom divided into three groups and discussed what to put on a Thanksgiving menu using the grocery store inserts from The Warren Record. After arranging their menus, students tried to guess how much the shopping trip for these foods would cost and what they could do to reduce costs, such as using coupons and looking for discounts.

To conclude the project, the groups decided on four steps they needed to follow in order to cook their Thanksgiving main course, the turkey. Group instructions are listed with the photos below.
