This activity is a fun introduction to speaking for special occasions. Students will create an award for a classmate. Then, they will present the award in a special speech to "the Academy," or whatever class you choose! In return, they will also learn to graciously accept their designated award. Some of these are great-my personal favorite was the "Hairiest Chest Award," complete with a furry sign and hair brush!
This activity includes:
-An instructional note and lesson plan
-Rubric for speeches and logistics
