How about having students research a relative who emigrated to America and on a designated day have them dress up as that relative and give a 2-3 minute presentation.

Also, in my class we do something called Heritage Dolls, it's a paper version of this idea. The students receive a blackline master of a doll (can fit on an 81/2 x 11 paper). They take this home and have mom/dad help them trace it on cardboard. They dress their doll to represent the country (i.e. Germany = liederhosen) and fill in a two page handout that we give. On the handout are questions

1. Which ancestor did you choose?

2. Discuss what they're wearing and tell more about this person.

It's simple but informative. Once the class presents they I post the dolls around a world map ($10 at the local teacher store) and it turns out to be a wonderful, visual presentation.

Hope that helps!
