I created an assignment on the use of persuasion and propaganda. Kids watched the commercials, picked their favorites, and briefly wrote responses related to techniques used by marketers to sell products.

I generally use the commercials as a basis for discussions or interactive lessons in critical thinking, marketing, psychology, and being an informed and wise consumer.

Football is all about physics. Conservation of momentum is all about collisions.
