Bumper Stickers

  1. Have students brainstorm about different bumper stickers they've seen. You may want to have students look for bumper stickers as a homework assignment before this activity.
  2. Ask students why people place bumper stickers on their vehicles. What are their motivations? Are there different reasons?
  3. Ask students: What do you think is the purpose of the bumper stickers you've seen? Write down the purpose for each one you've seen.
  4. End with: If you had a car to put a bumper sticker on, what would you say? Why?
