Thanksgiving is tomorrow and in case you are at a loss on how to cook your turkey, Shelby Elementary third graders are more than happy to help with their thoughts on “How to Cook a Turkey.” 

First, I grab a turkey. Second, I put it in the oven. Next, I chop off stuff that my family doesn’t eat. After that, I serve the food to my family. Finally, we eat the turkey.


First, you kill a turkey or you by a frozen turkey. Second, you put the turkey in the oven and put it for 250 degrees. Next, for about 20 minutes, you take it out of the oven. Wait 10 minutes. Then, you eat the turkey.

First, you grab a turkey from a store. Second, you unwrap the turkey or you will burn the wrap from the store. Next, you put it in the oven to warm up. Then, you take out the turkey from the oven where you put your turkey. After that, you put lime ingredients for a flavor. After a couple of minutes or hours, you will be finished with your turkey from all those steps from making a turkey. Finally, you can take it to your Grandma’s or Uncle and Auntie’s for Thanksgiving dinner. Or you could eat it at you’re house and share with your family.
