In this seventh grade art unit, students will invent a machine that is used to solve a problem they encounter in their everyday lives. Students will brainstorm in their groups to discover different problems they encounter throughout their day-to-day lives. Students will use this to help them create a machine to help solve their problem. Students will need to identify their target audience and learn how to gear promotion of their machine towards that audience. Students will learn about infomercials and how they are used to sell and promote a product.
