Your informative speech can be anything that you want me to inform me on. For example, it could be on the
emerald ash bore. It could be on the five themes of Geography. It could be on Christianity. It could be on the
history of the Ford Mustang. It could be about the Flash or Superman. It could be about Aberdeen. Things to
do, things to see, and things to avoid. It could be ways to survive this quarantine. 
The disease topic suggestion is easy to do if you are struggling with what topic you should do. Remember
whatever topic you choose you need to be SPECIFIC in your explanation.
