With all of the modern images of the female form out there it's
hard to imagine 7/8th grade boys getting too much thrill from
old Nat. Geographic magazines. Sounds like a "Happy Days" rerun.
I simply joke it off in my class and tell them they have to get their
thrills outside of school. I tell them there is a BOE rule "no frontal
nudity allowed". Of course I'm setting myself up for a butt collage.

We take a day just to tear up old Nat. Geographic magazines looking
for good collage pages. They look for color, texture, pattern, etc.
