Default Video Activity

Hello!!
I'm thinking of preparing a video activity for class but I don't know which topic maybe appropriate.
My idea is to prepare a script about something they can perform afterwards and then I'll take a video camera to the class and record them. The script will be prepared by the students in class and they will make up the story. But I have to think about a topic to make the story and my mind is completely blank. The students are teenagers in between 12 and 15 years old.
I'd be grateful if you could suggestme some topics.
Thank you all a lot!!

Hi Igil,

I have found it can work if you ask the students to give you a list of topics they want to write a story about. Take a vote on which one they think will work best as a video, then script it. The students can work in groups to come up with the dialogue. If it's their idea they may be more motivated! Good luck.

Judy Bone.

Hi !!!
In my opinion, you could make that video based on what the teenagers like doing or something related to their common life , such going to the supermarket, queeing on the bank, etc,but of course it has to be funny and enjoyable!!!
