    We have to teach the class something that has to do with humanities for half a class period(45minutes). However I hate drawing or painting and can't play any musical instruments. So I'm looking for something computer related to do. My teacher said i couldn't teach kids how to play CS.:frown:

    philosophy or a play are your best bets. you're probably sol as far as computer related things go.

    I could see that for a research paper, but I'm supposed to somehow involve the class in some activity. I don't think just a class discussion about it would work.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Nothing really sounds any easier than ideas i have came up with.
    For an example of what the teacher wants, one student is going to teach the class some ballet. The students don't have to actually learn anything, just try to do it.
