Bubble Gum Media Literacy Unit




Thinking About Bubble Gum!


    Bubble gum has been the topic of conversation in the Grade two classes for the last few weeks.  We have been studying bubble gum wrappers and websites to determine the target group the different gums are made for. The students designed their own bubbegum wrapper with a specific audience in mind.  They also are writing advertisements which they will present to the class.  We talked about why companies sell gum and how they attract their target group to purchase their brand of gum. The unit will be wrapped up with a time for bubble gum chewing and blowing bubbles!


Here are some of the websites that we visited during this time.
