Write it on Crypto-zoology. There was a recent addition about "The Lizardman of Lee County"
If you don't like that, use this website:
Pick a state, especially great if they have your state listed, and find some weird stuff about there :D.
If you want to have some fun, use the speech to teach people something. Use the time between now and when you need to give the speed to teach yourself how to do the trick, be it spin a yo-yo or do a yo-yo trick, blow a bubble with chewing gum, whistle a new way, spin a pen/pencil (there's a website for it - a forum area where people can teach you tricks about it at http://www.pentrix.com/ and a video tutorial at http://www.metacafe.com/watch/307196/pen_spinning_tutorial/) you also can learn how to do origami or make paper airplanes. Once you've learned this new trick, write your speech and use the time to teach the class using your speech (I suggest bringing props, especially if you plan on teaching to spin pens/pencils, fold origami or make paper airplanes). It would definitely be something no one else will think about doing and you will have an informative AND interactive speech! Oh! Here's something fun, informative and the class will remember, try to find all the things that the body can't do, like touch your nose with your tongue, lick your elbow - I don't recall the others but I know there are more! Try to find them and find out the reason why they are impossible, Perhaps find out if there are people who can do these and why (A good example is people with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome can touch their tongue to their nose and some of us can lick their elbows!). You'll have people trying to do everything you say they can't, and the class will be giggling as they strain to try to lick their elbow and touch their nose with their tongue. It'd be quiet funny to see all those people trying to lick their elbow, forget trying to get rid of speech shyness by picturing everyone in their underwear (and I had a teacher explain that you shouldn't do this, there are some people you don't want to see in their underwear :D) imagine the class trying to lick their elbows!
About ten years ago, I did a speech about using household items as first aid splints and first aid items. I included stirring spoons, spoons and spatulas mostly (a few other items but I forget what ones now) that I made into wrist and finger splints with an ace bandage (my joints dislocate easily and I used a volunteer from my audience to splint up to show how they'd work, they all remembered the speech I gave and when they hurt a finger or wrist in culinary class, they turned to their spoons or spatulas! Confused their teacher though)!
So definately do something unique that will stand out, people will remember it for a long time! :) Good luck :)
This is an interesting link about urban legends and myths. It would make for an interesting speech topic.
LOST NUCLEAR MISSILES ♦♦♦♦
How many nuclear warheads have been lost by the US Army or Navy during the years?
Pick one or two, depending on how long your speech has to be and how much background you can put in.
CAN YOU PHOTOGRAPH A GHOST? ♦♦♦♦
Have people really photographed ghosts, or are we just seeing blotches on film and wishing that they were ghosts? (There is a technical name for this: pareidolia, where we look at something mysterious and try to see a human face in it.)
WHERE IS HIJACKER D. B. COOPER? ♦♦♦♦
Have you ever dreamed of committing the perfect crime? One man in the 1970s may have done just that. His name was D. B. Cooper -- or so he said -- and after he hijacked a plane he donned a parachute and JUMPED...and hasn't been seen since.
