  • Research and Revise: Add to your initial ideas on how to recommend the best brand of paper towel to school district officials. (see handout)
  • Test the Paper Towel Brands for: StrengthRate of absorbencyOverall absorbency Cost
  • Create a presentation based on your findings and present it to the school board. Your presentation must include a recommendation to the school board for the purchase of a particular brand of paper towel. You must support your recommendation with evidence that you collected during your research. (See attached rubric)
