Lesson plan ideas for the last few days of school (in China)

Exams are done, grades are submitted, and we still have class? Yeah, I have up to 6 45-minute periods left with my grade 10 and 11 students next week that I would rather not fill with nothing but movies. I need ideas for something else to do with ~35 Chinese teenagers.

The students have relatively good English, but I'm not an English teacher and I don't really want to get into total ESL stuff as I expect they'll do that in their English class. They're in an international program, so keep in mind that they've got 4-6 foreign teachers trying to entertain them for four days, so simply showing movies is going to get old really fast.
I was thinking of something Canadian/American culture related, but other than making food, I can't think of much. Restrictions: I don't want to spend too much money (therefore cooking might not be ideal, and we don't really have the facilities anyway), I move to their classrooms so too much physical set up is unrealistic, and I don't want to spend hours doing prep work as I'm burned out after my first year.
Most class periods are actually double 45-minute periods, so 1.5 hours, but there are a couple single periods too.
I'll take any suggestions you have!
