For a recap on each of the steps, click the images. Otherwise, enjoy:
Each inventor received $100 to advertise the inventions. Here are the eight ways they could spend money:
Commercial for $80: One thirty second commercial to be posted on the blog
Internet ad for $70: One internet ad to appear on the blog
Radio ad for $60: One thirty second radio ad to be put on the blog
Billboard for $50: One 40 in x 30 in billboard to be placed anywhere in school
Email blast for $40: One email advertisement to be blasted to all 2nd grade email accounts
Print ads for $30: 10 print ads to be placed into library books
Mail for $20: 10 papers, "stamps", and envelopes
Flyers for $10: 10 flyers to pass out to people of their choice.
Flyers were the most popular choice, while no one shared any interest in buying snail mail. What a surprise, huh? Nevertheless, below are all of the inventors that chose to advertise on the blog.
I was so tickled by all of these young inventors and their ideas that I dove deep into my teacher savings and wrote them all a big check for $100!
Now it's time to advertise!
