    Benjamin Franklin’s first practical application of electricity—one that was “of use to mankind”—came at the expense of his favorite feathered friend. In 1750, he sent an electric charge through a turkey. He was able to report to colleagues around the world: “birds killed in this manner eat uncommonly tender.”

    In the spirit of Franklin’s open approach to science, share your own special turkey techniques. Basting? Brining? Deep frying? Baking upside down? Then take a look at a lesson in which students use Franklin’s methods to electrify a Cheerio. http://s.si.edu/1entGxA
