    After a short recap about Mc Donalds' marketing strategies to attract children, you analysed different ads.

    Here they are:

    Here is the grid you completed:

    Here are your conclusions:

    In the ads, they use a lot of strategies:

    -cute animals

    -dark humor

    -to shock

    -a seducing celebrity

    -to compare


    Diaba and Celia prefer the commercial because they both like Hugh Jackman's muscular body: he is seducing and virile.On the first picture, the dog is wrinkled whereas on the second one, his skin is smooth.

    Today, you first started with the lesson. Then, you finished the recap. Here is what you said:

    Every child recognizes R. McDonald: he is the mascot of the fast food chain. Children see him on TV, in commercials.
    None of them/Nobody recognizes Jesus: one of them makes a mistake, he says he is G. Bush.
    One of them recognizes Wendy: she is the mascot of a famous fast food chain/the third fast food chain in the U.S.A.
    Therefore/As a consequence, every American child recognizes R. McDonald because they see him in commercials.

    Written by Chloé.


    None of them recognized Jesus. One of them thought he was Georges Bush.

    Only one of them identifies Wendy who is the mascot of a fast food restaurant.

    All children recognize Ronald because they saw him in TV commercials.

    Consequently, he wants to prove that Mc Do is on TV, in commercials (= everywhere).

    Written by Mélanie


    As a conclusion to this document, you talked about Mc Do strategies to attract children.

    Here are the strategies you mentioned:

     Mc Donalds has many other strategies to attract children:            

    * in the restaurants, there are playgrounds.         

    * they offer a free toy in happy meals.          

    * you can celebrate your birthday in Mc Donalds.         

     *they use a funny and cute mascot.

    Thus, children are gullible /naive/easy to influence/easy targets.

    Written by Manon.


    To finish, you corrected the methodology activity:

  • Hey!


    Today was a bit exceptionnal because the other group was supposed to have class yesterday, that's why we did a 'different' activity today.

    Remember the video document with the kids? You laughed when they were not able to recognize Jesus for example, but would be better at this guessing game?


    The winner was Inès! Well done!
