Interesting list indeed.
I have used a simplification of "The diffusion network game" of Valente with University students. It may also work.
I have also shown Game of thrones characters network maps and ask them "which character would you talk if..."

Kind regards

Gloria

Nice list! 
I would add the following: let them study and compare their own networks, for example, there are methods to extract your facebook or instagram network (Gephi, but there is more). Let them also fill in a position generator instrument, discuss access through sociale ties etc. and learn ways to analyze it. 

All the best,
Beate

Thanks for all your replies. Hier a list based on info from Tom Valente, Christina Press, George Barnett, Kate Eddens, Beatrice Garcia, Christine Sowa, Alicia Bargar, Johanna Jan, Britta Hoyer, Robert West, Ian McCulloh:
 
A) Data
- Degrassi: A Canadian teen drama television series set in the Degrassi universe [based on 16 year old]
- Manga: Drawing Manga, Anime [11]
- Harry Potter: Books and movies, watch movie and code it, e.g. which characters said spells and who the spell was directed towards [10]
- Disney: Networks of the Disney characters and their relations to one another.
- Oracle of bacon website
 
B) Methods
- Drawing personal networks: A big bulls eye and they had to plot everyone they knew on it, etc.
- Tinker Toys: Students construct small group networks.  The round pieces are the nodes and the sticks are the links. Having something concrete really works well with young students.  
- Puzzle-solving game: Network analysis-themed escape room or Chamber of Secrets
- Pushpins and string
 
Best,
Jürgen

Betreff: [SOCNET] Question: Girls do Networks
 
***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** 
 
I have a quick question for you. We will be having a summer program for middle-school girls and I am planning a “Girls do Networks” workshop (3 days). Does anyone here have experience/materials for such activities and/or do you have an idea for a practical project (data collection/analysis)… that doesn’t look like an idea from an old guy who tries to come up with something cool? ;)
Thanks,
PS: If you have a 12 +/- 2 year old daughter, I’d be happy if you do a little youth culture interview for me. I bet there is a movie/book/etc. that they all know that we could analyze…
