Instrument Family Turkeys

My 4th graders will attend a local symphony performance next week.  In order to get them ready, instruments have been on the brain!

Last night, I thought of the game "pin the tail on the donkey" only, I intend to make four large poster-sized turkeys (Strings, Brass, Percussion, Woodwinds).  Each student will get an instrument and will have to pin it on the correct turkey.

In order to get them ready, the students do some group activities and even complete a worksheet about their favorite instruments (I'll post this stuff soon).  I also came up with a mini-Instrument Family Turkey Activity for them to complete as a group.  You can download it here for free: Instrument Family Turkeys

Have fun!  These look too cute!


  1. Thanks for this post! I noticed in the free download that there were only seven pages -- there was not a page of feathers for the percussion family... Is one available? I love this idea!

  2. Fixed! Thank-you! I must have accidentally forgot to save changes!
