10-Pack of History Biography / Trading Cards - 320 Cards - Google Drive 33% Off!

If you teach history have I got a deal for you! 320 trading cards of historic figures for your students to complete. Here is a way your students can discover these historic figures from different eras in history that allows them to find out some basic facts, but also allows them to identify what they think is important about each person. Each trading card has the same format and allows students to gather a very brief snapshot of who these people were and what they did that had an impact on the world. Decide how many you'd like students to complete and make a mini-research project out of it. Kids really enjoy this format!

Technically there are 320 trading cards, but 307 different people. 13 people were included in two different sets because I couldn't do both sets justice without them.

The historic figures that are repeated are in two different products are:

Clara Barton, Dorothea Dix, Eleanor Roosevelt, Eli Whitney, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher-Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Jane Addams, Maya Angelou, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, Upton Sinclair, and W.E.B. du Bois.

These files are in .pdf format and can be printed on standard 8.5x11 inch paper. Each trading card is on a half sheet of paper and will need to be cut out by students to write on and fold to make into front/back trading cards.

There isn't a lot of room for students to write so they'll have to be brief and to the point, thus contributing to the brief snapshot of each person's life.

Each trading card is set up to be folded into a front and a back and could be stapled together or left unfolded to see both sides at once. Included on each front side is a picture of the person and their name just like you see on the cover page.

The following products are included in this bundle:
