Keyhole Paintings - Did with 5th grade, turned out AMAZING. Each student got a book about a different country, chose a picture to copy within their "keyhole." Draw then paint. Used oil pastels to create door and wood grain. Cut out key shape from template and wrote a sentence explaining their keyhole and attached to the bottom of the picture. Lots of compliments! could have multicultural or historical theme.
