This sounds great, it'll be a fantastic opportunity to increase awareness to the girls. I've newly been diagnosed and have never come across anyone I know with asthma so its all new so am having to find out lots of information, the girls you present to might find themselves in a similar situation or may come across someone having an asthma attack so could be prepared for it.

You could explain a bit about what asthma is, what can cause it, what its like to have and what to do in an emergency. Pictures are always good for a presentation, and don't say too much. How about a little handout they could take home to read too?

Good luck xxx

You could go through some of the leaflets on AUk(astma uk site) they are self explantatory.
