We just started a new exercise in my Creative After School class. Over the next couple of weeks students will be working on a persuasive speech or a commercial. As a warm-up activity I asked each student to find a random item within the classroom and quickly come up with some key selling points. Students were asked to create a need for the product, discuss how it can benefit the consumer, and deliver their message in an engaging way.
I love how kids minds work! Check it out!
