Thought would try something a little different to try adn get the boys actually participating and excited about something. The lesson worksheet and ppt are pretty straightforward.
You do however need to rip/download a video from YouTube. If your classroom computer connection is fast enough you can just stream tho. I used a video clip called 'Best Extreme Sports Video Ever' from YouTube as the Intro.
This is then followed by the questions at the top of the worksheet but they are only starters. The video clip should get a good opening discussion going. The lesson has been really well recieved overall so far and it's Monday!

If you can't open it, try a free converter online that can put the file into an earlier version.

Fantastic lesson! I love it, and my kids will too!

Glad you liked it. I used it in both an all boys middle school and an all girls middle - went down really well in both :)

Definitely going to try this out in my all-boys school! Don't want to give them any ideas, but...
