Create a "fakebook" page for a character.my students have done this, but I never could find a good template! They just created it on a piece of posterboard, but this would be great to give them a better idea of the layout.
LOVE--Use this at the beginning of the year to get to know your students. Way more fun than a regular worksheet with a list of questions. Need to make my own version of this. OLDER KIDS WILL LOVE THIS!
I would use this as a fun alternative to writing a report about a historical figure. Not only does it include basic information about the person, but it can include interactions between important figures as well.
