Any ideas?

I am developing a lesson plan based on the Cottingley Fairies. In case
you are unfamiliar with them, they are the photographs taken after WWI by
two young girls claiming fairies are real. It was not until the 1980's
that they admitted they were fake.

This lesson will focus on trick photography, does anyone know of good
sources for information on various techniques to create this type of
photograph?

Also if anyone has any additional information on the Cottingley Fairies (I
have checked out almost every website pertaining to that subject, and I
have seen the movie), I would greatly appriciate it.

Supposedly there is another movie on the same subject, but I am not sure
of how to locate it.

Thanks for the help,
