Show & Tell - Talking & Listening Activity

What makes a great presentation? Planning, preparation and practice! Verbal and non-verbal interaction with your audience. Using a lovely clear voice with positive facial expressions, taking care not to rush but also not being too slow! These are all areas we need to practice often to improve our presentation and communication skills. Select a really interesting object at home to present to me. You have to discuss your item for at least 1 min and no longer than 2 mins. Make notes to help prompt and support your presentation. It is a good idea to record yourself into your camera roll and then use the option to send it to me. Remember to use a clear voice and try to add different expression and tone. Don't just read from a passage you have written about the object - pretend you are making a fun YouTube video for me! To make your object more interesting, you might want to make up details, eg. "My great grandfather found this at the bottom of the ocean when he was 12 years old...." Have fun!
