Research is vital to effective advertising.

 Here you will find information for each of your invention choices. 

 Remember that you must choose only one invention to advertise. 

 Effective advertising includes:
1.   What is it? 
2.   Who made it? 
3.   Description of it.
4.   How does it work? 
5.   What are its benefits? 

 Your objective is to convince the public to buy your chosen invention through the creation of an advertising poster that includes all of the criteria outlined in the rubric provided.

 You can use the graphic organizer in the folder below to help you gather the information you need for your final presentation.
