Step by step Instructions:
Revise what the students covered in the past 2 lessons regarding advertising and packaging conventions and materials. Use the concept map the students created on the SMART board to help.
Draw the net for the shape of the packaging the student requires.
Make sure students use a ruler
Students add the logo, slogan, other advertising or packaging conventions, the type of language they will use, describe any images they are wanting to use and state their target audience.
Students add colour and explain the emotion and/or message they are portraying through the use of colour.
Repeat steps 2-4 so each student ends up with 3 different design ideas
