Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket



OK, so I just finished a GATE expo thing (yay! GATE is enrichment reading) but now I need to do another project, and I'm choosing to do a how-to on a subject. The problem is, I have no idea what subject to do! PLEASE HELP ME COME UP WITH STUFF, I'LL CREDIT YOU IN THE PRESENTATION!

Please note the topics I'm interested in: 

Theater, writing, specific foods (willing to elaborate), TV shows, baking, origami, running, singing, poetry, acting!

Additionally, there is no set formulas to doing this: quiz shows, creating a rap, anything you can think of!

Help PLEASE!!

So, you want to have a presentation where you can show people how to make something? I suggest oragami then.  You could have step by step directions and pictures for each step. I personally think it would be easy to use a tri fold. Directions and finished product in the middle, pictures on the side. I will post a picture of what I am thinking later, but right now, I have to get going. Good luck!!!! (I hope this was helpful!)


Phox says faopa. *giggles* What does that mean?

Where do you live because a couple years ago I lived in Carpinteria, California, and that was the only place where they called enrichment/gifted GATE?!

Sorry this is so late! Here's the picture of an example of what i was thinking. Of course, you don't have to do it just like this. Yours would probably be larger, and this is assuming there are only six steps. You probabaly already know how to make a tri fold, but here it is anyway.

Thank you for this submission, Sunshine! I apoligize for this, but I decided to focus on a different topic than origami. However, I am taking this into consideration! Thank you greatly!

Oh okay! I hope you do well on this project, you surely deserve a good grade.

If you're being graded, I'd recommend doing something creative and/or different. A lot of people are probably going to make some version of a trifold or poster, so maybe try something different. My go-to plan for a project like this is to make a video, since I love making videos, but that might not be a passion for you.

What topic did you decide to do?

This is going to sound really boring, but...maintaining a work/life balance.

I swear I'm passionate about this! Plus, I get to do polls for the subject,
