Remember when you traded baseball cards? How about Garbage Pail Kids? Pokemon cards? Our students still keep and trade images, they just do it virtually through Instagram, Vine, Facebook and Twitter.
Here is a fun, low tech way to capture this social experience and get to know your students a little better. Artist Trading Cards enable students to create images, use them as a platform to share about themselves and then trade cards with their peers and with you.
You can even use the idea to create ATC for specific units or lessons. Keep the movement going!
Key words: art, introductions, creativity, symbolism, introspection, community building, characterization.
