  1. Ankle ice packs. Ice packs are awkward. Ankles are awkward. Ice packs shaped specifically for ankles = better.
  2. Make a city out of insulation foam. Then destroy it like Godzilla. Maybe even with a flame thrower by spitting fire with flour.
  3. 5 minute history. Martin Luther king in 5 minutes or less. Etc.
  4. Make a poster with the gear list of the Apollo mission laid out.
