We began this week by presenting our cereal box ads that we had been working on.
To inquire further into how messages are manipulated we began with critical evaluation of ads. We looked at ads and some of the things we tried to find out were -
- Who made the ad?
- What messages are conveyed. What techniques have been used?
- Is this fact, opinion or something else?
- What kind of actions I will take in response to the message?
We moved on to evaluating an ad given to us. We looked at that ad as a group and then created another ad for the same product keeping in mind the goods and the bad of advertising.
Once our advertisement were ready we moved on to critically evaluating them. We looked at the ads made by our friends and critically assessed them. We soon realized its not easy convincing people of your opinions!!!
In Language, we have been looking at persuasion in advertisements. We created our own ads to persuade the audience to buy our product that we invented.
In Math, we have been learning about equivalent fractions.
We took time out to learn more about the place we are going to be visiting next week. We had a talk form our camp leader Mr Andre to clear any doubts we had. We were reflective and thought about what we are expecting to see and experience on the trip.
Stay tuned for our trip scrap book with our pre trip and post trip reflection coming up soon!!!!.
We are now all set for the camping experience. Nilshi ........here we come!!!!!!
