2nd grade Favorite Food Ads

This is such a fun project and the kids really get into it - we talk about advertising and graphic design and how important clear, bold lettering/illustration is when putting together a successful advertisement to catch the viewer's attention. I was astounded at all the extra wording the kids were adding to their favorite food ads (buy one, get one free, gluten-free, kids eat free, etc.) - a clear sign that they have been influenced by successful advertisement! Students first created a border using a ruler. They were asked to fill the border with a pattern. Then they got to work on hand-lettering and illustration to convey a favorite food! This idea was inspired by a project idea I came upon years ago at Artsonia.
