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.
