I created a fake magazine cover for an author. I think that like the trading card for an author, this would be fun for the kids to create. They could make brief statements about their author. This is one way for the students to do research, then have to limit the information they found. They could put the most interesting information they found about their author. They could also create a cover at the beginning of the year as a get to know you assignment. The teacher could post them on the wall, so the students could get to know each other in the class with their picture as the cover of a magazine.
