I echo Claudia's suggestion of looking for something in your son's interests
to which to link the facts. Also, one neat thing to try is to cover your 
kitchen table with shaving cream (find a smell you can tolerate!) and have 
your son "write" his facts in the shaving cream. There is little fear of error 
when you can just wipe away any mistakes. It's amazing how something with a 
little different twist can renew interest.

I've also used clean sand (but not on the kitchen table).
