This is a great and fun way to get students excited about science vocabulary. I have tailored this assignment to Astronomy, however you could easily incorporate any vocabulary words you have in your units across subject areas. This file includes the student directions, rubric, and trading card template along with an example. Students are given a list of vocabulary words and the objective of the assignment is to cut-out the trading cards. Each card will have the vocabulary word with a picture on the front and on the back of the card students have to state a fact and make a real-world connection using the vocabulary term. Once the cards are all completed they serve as a great tool for easy warm-up questions and review games before a test.
