“These chips are so good that you can sell them” Eliza said to Beth after tasting the hot chips that Beth had made using rosemary and thyme, “my family would love to eat these!!!”

Eliza’s comments were the perfect introduction to the next activity for the Junior Landcare group. Miss Gorman informs the group “We are going to market the hot chips you made. You are going to tell the community what it takes to make these yummy hot chips. Think about the love and care that went into growing the potatoes, and the ingredients you needed to make them taste fantastic. How can we get our families and friends to love and appreciate these hot chips even more than we already do?”

ACTIVITY OVERVIEW

We are going to make an advertisement! In this activity young learners will produce a short (30-60 second) advertisement to promote their chips.
