Activity 7 - Originally Trademarked Words

Some trademarked names have become so familiar that we use them to describe all like products. How often have you asked for a Band-Aid® instead of a small bandage? This word and words like Kleenex® and Jell-O® are listed and defined in the dictionary. Have your students build a file for a Custom Lesson in class and then check their words in the dictionary. Those not listed do not qualify for this exercise. Use this list to get started and try the results in a game such as Road Race.
