I use this project to get to know each of my students during the first 6 weeks of school. I leave my bulletin boards empty at the start of the year. Then, I assign 2-3 students a week to decorate a board in my classroom that is all about them. On Fridays, they do a mini oral presentation to the entire class and share why they selected the items that they did on their boards. This is a great way to get to know students and to build a community classroom culture.
