Ahead of time, have students research three concepts and then write a brief paragraph about each on three index cards:
* What was the greatest invention of the 20th century?
* Who was the greatest person of the 20th century?
* What was your greatest accomplishment of the 20th century?
Now you’ll make paper mache globes out of large 11 inch balloons, starch, and strips of paper. Paint it so it resembles a globe. Now take a white strip cut like a ribbon or banner and glitter the numeral “2000” big enough to see from a distance. The banner will be glued onto the front using a small ripple action to give it a 3D effect. Attach the 3 cards to the bottom using fish line and a curved needle. These can be displayed around the room as way of bringing in this rare new year.
