Advertising poster

New Dutch products, by students of grade 3

You need:


  1. white drawing sheet A3 size
  2. watercolour paint
  3. brushes
  4. jar with water
  5. markers
  6. set of rubber stamp letters
  7. stamp pad

We look at advertising posters and advertisements for food. Why are some advertisements more attractive than others? What products would you buy after seeing the the ad, and which not? How to attract attention to a new product? What kind of letters are used, and why these? What can you say about the use of colours in the advertisements?

Students invent a new food including the name of it and make an advertising poster. Materials: water paint and markers. Because making block letters may be too difficult for young children, I gave them a set of rubber stamp letters to use.
