If you have access to laptops/computers, something I did that I feel was successful was to have them create - from 'scratch' - electronic flipbooks of the phases. They really loved working with the computers and learned many techniques (they used powerpoint) from each other. One requirement was that it had to 'self-animate' and move through the cycles in a timely manner. One of my favorite comments was "wow! I can use this in my other classes!"
Hope this helps.
I used the Power Point program and the drawing tools. the first step was to have the students "draw" the 6 stages. Then they duplicated and placed the slides in-between to "bridge the changes" from one phase to the next. After that it was just the extra touches. If you would like, I will see if I can find an example to post.

this was one of the better ones.
