Make learning about the American Revolution exciting! Students can create their own trading cards as if they were a "Founding Father" or "Lady of Liberty" during the Revolution. Students can create digital trading cards using the PPT template or they can be printed and then created at their desk. They are given a chance to demonstrate information learned through sharing their opinions as if they were a colonist during this time in history. It also provides a great opportunity for discussions as students trade cards and discover their classmates opinions as if they were really there during the Revolution.
An alternative activity is to have students research the Founding Fathers and then complete a trading card based on the information learned.
