More Ketchup

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

I spent yesterday afternoon, and my prep period today, pulling the ketchup bottle picture out of the PDF files I downloaded, re-orienting the bottle and the circle U (for kosher), and re-positioning them according to what each student wants - position, orientation, vertical or horizontal or diagonal, left, right, center, top, bottom, corner, and a variety of sizes.

I am officially tired.

I did check the kosher symbol on my lunch, however, so I can show my students the products and why it's important that we include this in our contest entries. (We already discussed the meaning and, having several Seventh Day Adventists in each class, they understood why certain groups have dietary restrictions based on religious beliefs. Last year I also had Muslim students, but apparently not this year.)

We have ketchup bottles shooting off fireworks. Or slices of tomato sliding down into the bottle. Ketchup bottle chess pieces. Ketchup and fries getting married. These are hysterical!!!!!

When we finish, I'll try to scan in some of the artwork, to share. The kids are having fun. We've talked about advertising and package design, and what is catchy, how to have a funny package, etc. They seem to have understood.

I love fun projects - despite the fact that I'm dizzy from spinning ketchup bottles on the computer!!!!!

    I am really looking forward to seeing these pictures you have worked so hard over. One day maybe I too will be able to draw sauce bottles. That would be so cool!
