A "how to" speech

i have to have a 3-7 minute speech on "how to do" something. i can write the speech easily, but im having trouble picking a topic.

classmates speeches include:
'how to make cookies'
'" " " smoothies'

now the teacher doesn't want all food topics, but i cannot think of anything to do.

we must provide a visual aid. so all of the ppl above are going to make their topic infront of us.

-HELP

Right on!

Right on, that is a great topic. Do the how to make cookies one, and make some cookies. After your speech hand out some cookies. For a visual let them sit in peoples view for a few minutes, then take them away so the people wont lose focus on you....the teacher will love ya once sh ehas some of those cookies!!

Ask your classmates to see what they're interested in. If you hear a few classmates say "I really wish I knew how to..." then you know there's interest for that topic.

You could also focus on your skills and interests. If you're great at soccer, for instance, teach them how they can improve their soccer skills. If you're a great writer, teach them how to improve their writing.

How to speech

I just got assigned the same thing and finally decided to do mine on
'How To Draw Yourself as a South Park Character'
If you go to http://www.sp-studio.de/ you can create a character step by step so just stick w/ the basics (head, eyes, mouth, body) and let your audience decide how they will add the hair and clothing and such. Its a really easy thing to draw and by drawing you are demonstrating. You could also find other subjects like How to Draw Snoopy, How to Draw a Smurf, and if you're ambitious, How to Draw Yourself as a Simpson.....hope that helps someone!

It really is quite an easy topic:

How to... (do an everyday thing).

A million and one phrases fit that void, so go nuts!

How to associate the universe with toothpaste. that kind of topic is.. funny

A "How To" speech opens up many choices for the speaker, given that the original poster wanted a speech where he/she needed a visual aid whilst delivering the speech then the following speeches would fit the bill;

How to provide a presentation using Powerpoint.

How to make well-done toast without burning it.

How to say Hello in 10 different languages. (visual aid should be the flag of each country on screen/board for everyone to see.)

Hope these help.
