What others have said about this identifying independent and dependent variables activity :

  • This is very challenging for my 8th graders and I LOVE it because it really makes them have to stop and analyze the advertisements, and it really helps to review independent vs. dependent variables.
  • Great concept for an activity in our consumer society. You had to find your own advertisements, but the kids really liked it a lot. Effective lesson.
  • Very clever…I hope this makes my student really think about products and their advertising.
  • This one is a keeper. Very creative and can use as a differentiated lesson! Thanks!
