    I dont think this is really the place for this, I'd try the contest section. I'll give you a theme though:

    Take a picture of some one running at night with 5 multiple perfectly exposed copies of that person with using a long shutter speed of at least 5 seconds and what ever other tools you need.

    The following are typical Photo 101 assignments. Beyond achieving the technical goals, you should try to incorporate the technical aspects aesthetically. In other words it's not enough just to show shallow and deep DOF in assignment #1, the DOF should be used in a way that adds to the visual impact of the photo. In #2 you wouldn't freeze a car, because frozen cars look like parked cars.

    #1 Aperture: Create two photos. One that demonstrates shallow depth of field (DOF), and one that demonstrates deep DOF.

    #2 Shutter: Create two photos. One that freezes action, and one that renders motion as a blur.

    #3 Light: Create at least three photos outdoors. Set your white balance to daylight. Each should be composed identically (so find a scene that's close to your home or on your daily route), but taken at different times of the day, in different weather, etc...

    #4 Exposure: Create three photos. Each should be composed identically, but overexpose one by 1.5 to 2 stops, and underexpose one. This probably works easiest with silhouetted subjects.

    Compare the differences and similarities of the finished photographs.
