This Thanksgiving Algebra activity will strengthen your students’ skills in graphing lines in slope intercept form.

Students are given a graph with 12 turkeys on it and 12 y=mx+b equations. Students will cut out each equation and graph the line on the turkey graph. They will then glue the equation next to the turkey that it “caught”. Turkeys are “caught” when a line runs through any part of their body. Precision is key in this activity as each line should only run through 1 turkey. If a line runs through more than 1 turkey the student was not precise enough.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Construct linear and exponential functions, including arithmetic and geometric sequences, given a graph, a description of a relationship, or two input-output pairs (include reading these from a table).
Graph linear and quadratic functions and show intercepts, maxima, and minima.
Graph functions expressed symbolically and show key features of the graph, by hand in simple cases and using technology for more complicated cases.
Use function notation, evaluate functions for inputs in their domains, and interpret statements that use function notation in terms of a context.
Interpret the equation 𝘺 = 𝘮𝘹 + 𝘣 as defining a linear function, whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear. For example, the function 𝘈 = 𝑠² giving the area of a square as a function of its side length is not linear because its graph contains the points (1,1), (2,4) and (3,9), which are not on a straight line.
