I haven't read any of the previous responses, so pardon me if I repeat others' ideas. I know you may not want them using computers, but perhaps the students could use some work on keyboarding skills? Maybe they could practice keyboarding for 20 minutes and then rotate to other activities. Podcasts, putting puzzles together, independent reading time, cursive handwriting practice (if that is something you see a need for), planning and creating educational bulletin boards for you/other teachers, and being mentors to younger students are possibilities.

Could teachers of younger students use assistance from your 6th graders? Maybe listening to the little ones read or helping them with projects?
