totem pole using recycled objects. This will be perfect for Day Camp next year since it's going to be western. Cowboys and Indians! I'm thinking give each boy one to decorate and then combine each dens together for the finished product.
Cool Bulletin Board idea to "spotlight" a student or famous person. I would do both. Maybe every week a different actor, playwright, designer, etc to research to extra credit or a weekly report, and every now and then a student, to make them feel special having been up on the same wall as a big name.
