    A friend I teach with had his students read a biography of a famous person. He then had the students trace their bodies on white butcher paper. They had to design the person to look like the famous person they researched.They colored them and cut them out. The students did a report on this person and the placed the report in the hands on their drawing. (They were told to draw the hands to make it look like the person was holding a book.) He hung these "famous people" in the hallway and needless to say they were a big hit!! It was fun to guess who the person was before reading the report. You could also hang these up around the classroom and save on some decorating for a while!

    Another cool idea would be to have each student decorate a 2 litre soda bottle to look like the famous person they researched. Then, have the report about the person written on large index cards that would stand in front of the bottle to display both.
