6-8 - The Arts, Creative Thinking, Media Literacy
Ask students: Do you wear hats? Why? When? (e.g., for sports, protection from weather, religious purposes, celebrations, etc.)
Explain that September 15th is Make a Hat Day. Share the information in the introduction or visit here.
Challenge students to design a hat. For inspiration, share the following website addresses here.
Here are some considerations:
- Who is the target group for your hat?
- Why did you select this target group?
- What special attributes or unique characteristics does your hat have that will attract your target group?
Have students create a drawing or other representation of their hat and prepare a 30-second ad to appeal to their target group. Share with the class.
