After some hotter than summer days, we are back to more normal weather. However, people living from the midwest United States to the east are dealing with FREEZING weather. Can you even imagine having to:
Scrape ice off your car windshield every morning
Dig your car out from under several feel of snow every morning
Having busses not running because there’s too much snow on the road
Getting dressed every day with hat, boots, mittens, scarf, and jacket
Not losing your hat, boots, mittens, scarf and jacket at school
Having your pipes freeze, then burst at home so you’re without water!
Being stuck in your house since it’s not safe to go out.
Trying to avoid having icicles fall on you.
Trying not to slip and break a bone as you walk on icy sidewalks
Shoveling snow off your roof so your roof doesn’t collapse!
We are spoiled!

Use one of the 6 advertising techniques.
Include a slogan.
Collect the URLs of the images you use.
When you finish your commercial, get the instructions from me in order to embed it in your blog.
If we don’t run out of time… blog about the technology.
Explain which advertising technique you used for your commercial. How are you trying to sell your product? This needs to be a full paragraph, so give details!
When you finish, you need to link the title of the article to the webpage it came from. Watch this video for directions:
This one is not a commercial, but it shows you what
Animoto can do. Remember, ask me to make you a new account if you want this option!!
