Jon, 

I have always liked topics using geometric probability. The reason it seems a bit 
more interesting for the kids is that it is possible to start with a very basic 
problem (darts or coin toss) and build it up just by changing the figures or the 
rules a bit. There is an NCTM publication on this topic that could get you 
started. 

Good luck.

Rick
