Slogan and Jingle Development

You have been assigned the very important task of creating a slogan or jingle to advertise your new chocolate product.  Think about the songs and slogans you hear everyday on radio and TV commercials.  Also look at billboards and print advertisements in newspapers and magazines.  You will be creating something very similar!  Your slogan or jingle needs to name and describe the product.  It should also encourage people to buy the product.  In addition, try to make your slogan or jingle very "catchy", which means that people remember and repeat it often.  Finally, be sure to make it look good to people of many ages and interests.  Good luck, and get to work!

Take a look at some of the magazine and newspaper ads on display in the classroom.  Also, pay attention to TV and radio ads.  They might help you to get started.
