Students can take a look at the purpose, audience, and message of the video and the various elements that contribute to the overall effect. An additional layer can be added by looking at The making of the Polar Bear Commercial which has a purpose, audience and message all of its own!

Students were able to discuss, explore, and create in their groups. Each student had something of value to add at every centre. I was so impressed by their ideas and their collaboration.
When asked in an exit card what they learned today their responses were thoughtful and reflective:
"I learned about other people's experiences and perspectives"
"Everything you know can be poetry"
"Sometimes less words means alot and help me believe that poetry is more than it seems" [sic]
As a follow up, they will be using this activity to create poems of their own--I can't wait to read what they create!
Thanks Ms. Di Raimo, Ms. Verardi and Grade 7's!
