Thanksgiving Bulletin Boards

I just thought that I would share two of my current Thanksgiving bulletin boards. 
The first one is a Math bulletin board. 

 I do not have a pattern for this, I just freehanded them.  But, I can tell you the dimensions of the paper.  You will need a 5×6 brown, 1×3 red, and 2×2 yellow for the turkey body.  I just cut out a bowling pin type shape for the body. 

Next, I labeled each brown part with a number (2-22).  The students colored a paper plate with a brown crayon and made their turkey body.
After the students make their bodies, pass out 6 feathers (approximately 3×6) to each student.  I guided them through ways to make their number.  We did each feather one at a time with different directions for each.  Each student had one with tally marks, 2 with addition number sentences, one with a subtraction number sentence, one with a picture to show their number, and one with money.

Another bulletin board in my room right now is a turkey body that I had made about 5 years ago using the overhead projector.  I put this up every year with feathers that the students write on to show what they are thankful for.

I have done others in the past where students have had to write about how they would cook a turkey.  You can find this idea at What the Teacher Wants.
What are some of your favorite Thanksgiving displays?
