    I had to read a nonfiction book over the summer for my Literature class and I chose The World Is Flat.
    We are supposed to do a project on the book and I need a creative way to present 10 facts I learned about the book.
    If you have read the book can you help me think of an idea.
    I was thinking of making tiny little cardboard boxes with the facts in them and displaying some of the facts by displaying how they work like outsourcing and how Wal-mart and Dell cut down on costs.
    I'm having a tough time deciding how to do it so I need your help.

    Draw a circle on a piece of paper, then cut it out. Draw in some continents, add some color, and bam! - you have a flat Earth in no time.

    Just don't mix up the book with the Flat Earth Society...

    But lots of people are doing posters and if too many people do posters I get a bad grade.
    Bad grades suck.

    Materials:

    1x Large Poster Material
    10x Paper large enough to cover a single fact
    10x Paper for creative stuffs
    Writing utensils and presentation cheat sheet

    Procedure:

    Begin by writing the 10 learned facts on the poster. Use a single piece of paper to cover each fact. Make it to where the covers are easily lifted and secured to reveal the facts (I'd use a cheap decorative pin to make a pivot). Next, write a number that corresponds to a fact in the center of 10 pieces of letter sized computer paper. Fold each sheet into a neat paper airplane. Make it to where they're easily unfolded, but still perform well. Decorate to your heart's content.

    During the presentation, toss a single paper airplane to a classmate. Ask them to unfold it and tell you the number inside. Then proceed to reveal the fact and recite it. Do anything else you need.


    Instant hit right there.

    They might want to review how they grade their students, because grading them basing on other people's work is just... no...

    Well think about it normally people do average projects and get good grades on them but if many people do a really great job average projects get average grades.

    This brings a whole new point of view:

    1. North hemisphere is on the top, South hemisphere is underneath
    2. It is not possible to travel to the other hemisphere without falling (and those in the Southern hemisphere fell into space a long time ago)
    3. And uh... the Earth's crust has canyons everywhere (Due to the paint cracking as you deflate the ball), therefore Grand Canyon loses its appeal.
