Mosaic From a 4-H'er

Set a table, build a birdhouse, plant a garden, make a scrap book, make friendship bracelets, any type of food, make a duct tape wallet, make a piece of clothing, blow a bubble with gum, make play dough, make paper beads, write a letter, tie your shoe, make soap, any type of mathmatical method, make a snow globe.

These are just a few demos that I have done or thought about. Make sure when conducting your demonstration to make it fun, catchy, and full of personality. This will make the judges or audience. It can also make it memorable to take first place!

Also, it is important to describe why it is important to know how to do what you are demonstrating or how it can be useful. And also warnings or things to look out for as far as safety goes. This generally comes in the conclusion. Also, if there is something that is inexpensive, than include prices of the supplies.

For example: If you choose for a playdough. You could say that in comes in handy for a craft project while babysitting or it makes a great craft project and take home in vacation bible school. Be sure to not let the children eat the any of the supplies or finished product. Children may need parental supervision.

While it is not always necessary, judges often find it impressive if you list and discuss the nutrition facts in a food talk and point out a positive health benefit.

For example: "Peanut butter is a sweet treat the contains no cholesterol, but has a lot of protein in it."

This shows your judges or audience you have complete knowledge of the subject.

Explanational writing is supposed to regard trivial or very serious phenomenons. But most students like to hear easy things, like maturating an excellent toolbox for singing for large auditoriums. Exact equivalent for dancing and acting on an amateur stage. If you can not sing and dance of whatsoever, you could still read and proclame poems and short stories or perform a duo interp in theater at school. If you are a technical programmed specimen than tell and show us what your tricks are when riding a bike - a wheely perhaps - or riding on a one wheeled construction. Or to set up a computer divice or television hdmi connected with a flat screen on your personal pc or ipad for dummies. You see, gadgets enough to variate!

Soprts Equipment

Describe the different type of equipment that you use when doing your sport, and how you use it during play. Those are perfect demonstration speech topucs for speech class. You can illustrate with some props, or visual aids like sportswear, clubs, balls, shuttles, helmets, protection material et cetera. Bring in all the stuff and clothes and convince them to play your game some time too.

The Really Bad Scrapes
by: Tatiana, Humble,Texas

It was Tuesday my teacher, my classmates and i were outside playing a game. At one point we were supposed to run somewhere, and the last one to get there was out of the game. I ran and somebody was behind me so she tripped and she fell on top of me. Next thing you know, i scraped both knees one elbow and a foot and i wasbleeding! My teacher said "Are you okay?" im like "yeah" but not really because the scrapes were really hurting and freaking burning. My teacher sent me to the nurse and she wasnt there so the secretary put ointment some bandages. They lasted all day. When i got home my mom asked "what happened?" i said that we were playing outside and that i fell. Sorry i couldnt finish the story but when i have time ill finish it. Gotta go bye. Sincerely,

Show the merits of a product or service to your audience, in the end they are prospective consumers who like to know what / how / where to purchase something. Plus the little guarentee rules, shipping costs, consumer reviews and help desk facilities. All nice demonstration speech topic ideas for public speaking in speech class I think!
