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.
A secret ballot will be taken in class to determine which product/commercial was best.
After judging, students should write a 3-5 paragraph review of the activity that includes the following:
5. What are the reasons you gave in your paper for making your product "sell-able?"
