I would add one of my favorites from my classroom teaching days: invite students to create different Christmas wish-lists based on what they know of either famous scientists, writers, explorers, monarchs, politicians, mathematicians, whomever you may have studied this term.
As the image from Engage Their Minds indicates: Keep Calm -there are only four days left!

“If you are interested in something, you will focus on it, and if you focus attention on anything, it is likely that you will become interested in it. Many of the things we find interesting are not so by nature, but because we took the trouble of paying attention to them.”
