The popularity of certain sports and hobbies will vary from country to country and also between age ranges.

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.
