Photography challenge: Have everyone go and take a picture(s) related to a topic Mini Extemporaneous Speech challenge: Give everyone a broad topic (e.g. Meat Goats) and give them 10-15 minutes to research to prepare a 3-5 minute speech about Meat Goats.

Make sure there are at least two adults in attendance. Ask everyone to mute when not speaking. Encourage everyone to turn their video camera on. Sending out an agenda ahead of time can help make things move quicker and more smoothly (and a little less complicated to coordinate). Plan for time at the beginning and end of the meeting for everyone to just catch up and talk to one another.
