cereal ingredients
Cereal Ingredients
  • Milled corn, sugar, raisins, toasted almonds, malt flavor, contains 2% or less of salt. BHT added to packaging for freshness.
  • SSEMI4 The student will explain the organization and role of business and analyze the four types of market structures in the U.S. economy.
  • Students will create and "sell" their own cereal product after observing cereal commercials and box covers. They will become familiar with the type of language used to sell products, as well as the marketing techniques used for creating visual images on cereal boxes and in commercials.
  • For homework, students will observe cereal boxes and cereal commercials. Then, in class in small groups (3-4), they will brainstorm things that the boxes and commercials have in common.

Students should look for things on the box that would make people want to buy that cereal. They should also discuss the audience for which the box is intended. If the selling feature is that it is healthy like Total, the audience is for adults concerned with meeting all of their suggested daily nutrition. Students may want to come up with several examples.

  • Create your own cereal concept, design a cereal box, and come up with a 1-minute commercial to sell your product.
  • To make the box, simply cover an actual cereal box with white butcher paper and attach with tape or glue, or use a plain shirt gift box. You should include all of the features of a normal cereal box (see last slide).
  • The commercial should be presented to the class in order to "sell" the product. Video or live in class both acceptable.
