Lesson Plan - Get It!

Audio:

Before you get started with this lesson, name one family member or friend that you would like to tell others about.

Now, you have exactly one minute to say out loud everything you can about that person!

You probably had a lot of things to say about the person you chose!

In this lesson, you are going to improve on this technique of public speaking.

To be able to tell other people things about your friend or family member, you will need to interview him or her first. You will choose a person that you are able to interview either in person, by phone, or video chat.

To help you prepare for your interview, watch a girl named Michela interview a woman named Devin. As you watch, jot down any tips or ideas for questions that you would like to ask the person you are going to interview.

  • Did you notice how both Michela and Devin had fun while getting to know each other?

While your interview questions will probably be different than the ones Michela asked, you hopefully got some ideas. If you need more ideas, check out 21 really fun interview questions for kids to ask their friends, by Bron Maxabella for Mumlyfe.

Now, use your notes to create at least 15 questions to ask during your interview.

Be sure to include open-ended questions and questions you don't already know the answers to. This is an opportunity to find out new information about another person!

You may record your questions in the space below or on a separate sheet of paper.

When you have your questions, move on to the Got It? section.
