  4. Answer these questions about the function (purpose) of the box you chose:

    • Does it contain something (keep something in a space)?
    • Does it communicate ideas (give information to someone using it)?
    • Does it carry something (hold something while it's being moved)?
    • Does it display something (present or show something for people to see)?
    • Does it dispense something (release something in a controlled way)?
    • Does it preserve something (keep something fresh and clean)?
  5. Create an advertisement for the package you examined. It could be a video, poster, magazine ad, persuasive letter, or more.
