The popularity of certain sports and hobbies will vary from country to country and also between age ranges. If you are planning to do a sports or hobbies themed lesson, make a point of choosing topics that will appeal specifically to your learners. This will encourage them to connect with the lesson material and participate fully in activities. If you are unsure what topics they will enjoy, have them complete a short survey or volunteer ideas. It is always best to make sure you are on the right track before creating a lesson plan than to realize midway through the lesson that you chose material incorrectly.
