Jerry,
How about something with number theory (prime numbers, perfect numbers, etc.)?
So much can be understood at even an elementary level. In addition, there
are some sources I've seen on the Internet and journal articles. There is an
interesting article called something like "Star Numbers" from an old
Mathematics Teacher (I think) that might provide some ideas. I could get
you an exact reference if you want it.
Good luck!

Eileen,
Always enjoy reading your posts. Your post about the calendar
prefixes created a flurry and it helped me come up with some possible
paper/report topics for my seventh and eight grade classes.

The wealth of ideas and information available through this list is
amazing! Soooo, I thought I would ask you and the other people on this
list for help.

I am looking for topics that my seventh and eighth graders could fairly
easily research and write about. The Calendar discussion brought up a
few topics that I have put on a list of possibilities. I am particularly
looking for topics that deal with numeration or historical aspects of
mathematics that could be discussed and understood at the seventh and
eighth grade levels.

Do you have any good topics that proved viable with elementary or junior
high kids? The time frame is to start reseach on Nov. 8, and complete it
before thanksgiving.

Thanks for any assistance you can give
