[texhax] limit lines per page for figures

I'm trying to figure out how to deal with the following situation.
There is no urgent need but I'm still curious how to deal with this.
My daughter's third grade class is doing some reports and they must
be done in Word. I'd like to know how to do this in latex. I've found
some bits and pieces but can't put it all together. It's a bit
beyond my current skills. They have a requirement that on pages with
pictures there can be no more than 8 lines of text. If a paragraph gets
interrupted then so be it. Of course the last line should be right
justified and the continuation should not be indented. You can bend the
rules for single line widows/orphans which may simplify the task.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
