    ...
    In today's material world, students are bombarded with advertisements promoting the attributes of popular brands of products they eat, drink, wear, chew or ride in. Show them an image of Aunt Jemima or the Quaker Oats man and visions of pancakes or a steamy bowl of oatmeal will probably appear in their minds. Mention the words - Coke, Jell-O or Sunkist - and they will most likely be familiar with the products they represent. But how do these brand names or product icons really influence them? Do they represent the best quality product? Should products be purchased solely because of their names? How can we help our students to become educated consumers?
    “This activity provides a historical view of some of the brand name products familiar today. By examining the history of these products, students can begin to get a sense of how some of today's successful brand names got their start. They can learn the fascinating stories behind the product names. They can observe how products changed over the course of history as a response to economic, cultural or technological influences. They can witness the adventure, creativity, imagination, courage, persistence and frustration exhibited in the lives of the brilliant and dedicated men and women responsible for the success of these products. They can investigate their own communities to locate and share similar success stories. By studying American brand name products from a historical point of view, students will gain a better understanding of the economic culture that they live in today.”
