My guess is that this project is so open for creativity and that students have so many choices that some are paralyzed by that. At least that sounds a lot better than saying students have been procrastinating. :)
There have been many tremendously creative product ideas. Some ideas have been - Facebook pages, MySpace, Posters, Videos, and even some are planning on conducting dramatic interviews or acting out a scene from the leader's life. I can't wait to see them.
Here is a link to the rubric (on the second page is information about the product and presentation):
