My (6th grade) students and I read Tuck Everlasting together as part of a novel study. After we finished the book I created this project for them to create an advertisement to help the Man in the Yellow Suit sell the magic spring water. It asks them to think about what might happen if the man had survived and he owned the woods and the spring.
I gave my students three different options for the type of advertisement they'd like to make and let them choose if they'd like to work by themselves or in small groups. They could make a commercial and record it or present it live, create a poster, or write a letter. One class period was full of all commercials and the other class period had a little more variety with a couple of posters made. It was really fun to see what the students came up with and they were really motivated to do a good job and they had fun putting their projects together! It was also good practice with being persuasive.
I have included the project explanation sheet and rubrics for all of the project types. They are word documents so they are completely editable so that you can personalize as you like!
