Advertisements are all around us, but do you ever stop to think about what they’re really telling you about the world? In this activity you’ll consider an advertisement from a billion dollar industry – the world of junk food. You’ll learn to see an advertisement with new eyes, through learning about visual techniques.
This is a good activity for kids to complete independently. However, they will benefit from reflecting on their ideas with others.
