That might be doable, especially if you wanted to work on their translation skills, since many articles articles are either in one language or the other, but there is often no sharing of information between the two languages. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should send them to the larger articles, but if you saw fit, you could easily find a few fun articles that they might be interested in and go from there.

I agree a service project based on photos of local historical sites may be the best fit, as a fun activity in itself, and as the students may be too young to jump into the midst of the regular Wikipedia editing community.

A possibly complementary option could also be a pursued with a Wikimedia sister project other than Wikipedia, such as Wikibooks, where for example this has been developed by elementary school kids and their parents:

It could be fun to have students working on articles covering Boston neighborhoods and local history.

We're doing service projects at school, and I would love to include Wikimedia in it.  Any ideas?
