PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you teach about the American Revolution as well as the Civil War? Here is a way to save money instead of buying each item separately. Your students can discover the historic figures of both time periods that allows them to learn 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 contributed to the history of the American Revolution or the Civil War. Decide how many you'd like students to do and make a mini-research project out of it. Kids really enjoy this format!

This file is 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.

For each person students will identify the following:

Date of Birth
Date of Death
Cause of Death
Role in the American Revolution or Civil War
Fun Facts
Legacy

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, their name, and their signature.
