The following is an assignment originally created for a 7th grade life science class. This assignment's objective is to assess student's understanding of the functions of skin. Students are told, via a created article, that they have discovered something "new", i.e. skin and are to market to the general public. People are skeptical of it, and therefore they need to create advertisements to persuade people to use it. This is a group activity.
Note: The article states the name of the school and teacher, so it will obviously need to be adapted to the classroom it is used in.
