Speech Topics for Children
Providing suitable speech topics for children can be a challenge. We want stimulating, interesting subjects for them to work with but we also need them to be aligned with their age group.
If we make them too adult we risk pushing them into areas they're too young to cope with. If we make them too simplistic we run the risk of minimizing or patronizing their growing sense of awareness. As in everything, we need to find the balance.
The suggestions below worked for me with middle-school children aged between 11 years to approximately 14 years. Some are more suitable for the imaginative child and others for the practical, factual child. How you select them will also depend on the objective or goal for the speech.
