I have just finished a major research project with my 5-6th graders in
both of my schools.  I now need some fun ideas to keep the kids interested
through May & June.  Some of them are a tough bunch.  I see the kids once
a week for 40 minutes, most do not check out books.  I've looked on the
archives, but really didn't find anything.  I will probably end the year
with Jeopardy.  They like games, but since they have used the Internet,
encyclopedias, etc. for this project, I would prefer not to repeat that,
same for notetaking.  I've tried reading to them, but most of them get
fidgety quickly.  Anything to really catch them for the last 6-7 weeks of
school would be appreciated.  I only have 6 computers in each library. 
Thank  you for your help.
