Truth, bAloney, and everything in-between!
In this lesson, students gain an awareness of advertising techniques used to sell products. Beforehand, the kids were assigned to bring to class their favorite ads. Through analyzing techniques used in the ads, the kids played the "Truth or Baloney Test." The test is used to analyze each ad and determine what's truthful and what's exaggeration or just fake. Next, the students share ideas and brainstorm to come up with powerful ad components, discussing techniques that are most important to create a compelling ad. Finally, each team collaborated and divided tasks to create their final farmers market ads.
