Grapevine Fabrication—Part 2

How do generics stand up against name brands? Groups work to compare three different generic brands of raisins to a recognizable name brand. Classmates count the number of raisins in each box and share with other teams. Using the data, they create a variety of displays and compare them to the same displays from the name brand raisins. Individuals then make recommendations on the brand of raisins to buy based on the comparisons.
