What is your special talent or skill? Why not share it with others!

Can you think of something you are really good at doing?

Are you a good baker or soccer player, or do you have a unique way to tie your shoes? Everyone has talents that make him or her unique. In this lesson, you will share your special talents with others by writing and presenting a how-to speech!

Begin by making a list of your talents or interests that you would like to share with others. Once you have a list, narrow down your choice to the one thing you would like to share. Think of that one special Thing that really sets you apart from the crowd – maybe it's something you learned in a special class, or a craft you learned from a family member!

Next, think of the steps necessary to complete the task. Choose something that can be completed in ten or less steps.

YouTube has many how-to videos. Watch this video entitled How to Bake Cupcakes - Cooking for Kids:
