Can't help you unless if you tell us your "special abilities"... Kind of boring if you give a speech on a skill that everyone can do as well.

Can you draw stuff?
maybe you could have a little walk through of how to draw ____.

Do it on the board and have the class follow step-by-step.

Take up juggling? Pends how much time you have to learn. If you watch a couple videos of it, and if you're well-coordinated, you can pick up 3-ball juggling in under an hour, and within a couple hours have it going pretty steadily.

Hmmm... at community college one time we had to give a demonstration speech. One guy demonstrated how to make and use a beer bong...

It took me two weeks :(


Um. I know an interesting trick involving some matches. Which probably isn't useful, but about which I am going to tell you anyway :)

You'll need two match boxes, a plate, and at least 3 matches.

Step 1: Set one match box on its end on the plate. It helps if you hold the match box steady with a little piece of cellotape on the bottom. Jam one match a little way down into the box.


Step 2: Balance the other match against it. Make sure the angle between the matches is wide enough that the third match can be inserted between them as shown. (When you do the trick, the third match will be lit)


Step 3: Light the third match. Light the heads of the two balanced matches by holding the third match a little way underneath.


Step 4: The phosphorus melts and fuses the heads together before they combust, so as the match burns, the second match is lifted up into the air.



Note that in this photo the match is only lifted a little way up. I'm using big thick matches - the trick works better if you use the little thin kind: you can get the second match completely horizontal to the ground.

We used to call this trick "Old man's willy" at school. :p
