Creative Projects for Frankenstein

As a part of our summer AP literature project, we have to have two 'creative projects' that "relate to and reflect the main points of your novel."

I'm stumped here, I'm not really the creative type and I'd really prefer doing another written assignment than a creative one.

The teacher of that class has never taught me before and probably wouldn't know my level. From what I've heard from other students, the teacher might not necessarily read carefully through the 12 written assignments she gave us, if at all. A great percentage of her grading would go to appearance and probably creativity.

A friend asked her what she thought of a movie poster as one of the projects. The teacher said that she wouldn't encourage her to do that, and that she wanted something really creative. She herselft gave us a list of suggestions which included a movie poster, obviously she doesn't want us to use her suggestions.

Since there are many teachers here, I thought maybe someone could give me some suggestions. Thanks.

What about trying to recreate the night of the creature's "birth"?  Maybe you can get a friend who is scientific/mechanical to set up a line/wire which can send electricity across a wire and make a model "jump." 

As I am not mechanically minded, I can only imagine.  However, if you could have some models (Ken dolls?) that are in the scene (painted backdrop, etc.) and some live action of some kind, the teacher may enjoy this.

I was thinking of creating an 8-foot model of the monster, has anyone done that/knows how to build one?
