Think like an advertiser and come up with new names to replace familiar ones.
Make a list of names of something familiar, such as car models and makes, clothing, shampoo, toys, or food. Where do these names come from? Discuss ideas about why manufacturers chose to name their products with these names. Find out how some of these names were chosen. Share strategies for selling products based on a name or image.
Use Crayola® Metallic FX Crayons to make a two-column chart on construction paper to record your own new names for familiar products. Write familiar product names in Crayola Metallic Colored Pencil in the left column under the heading Old Name. To the right of each old name write your new and improved product name in Crayola Gel Markers in a New Name column. Make the new name appealing and write it in a way that will catch the eye.
With your classmates, do a survey to find out which five products students in your class would most like to buy based on their new names. Tally and analyze the results. What factors made the most popular new products so appealing? Write a list of "rules" for naming a new product.
Student pollsters gather, summarize, display, and analyze their opinion poll results. What more could you ask?
