Product Description
This resource is called my "Trading Card Game" that works as a review lesson with students learning motion (distance, time and speed) and energy (kinetic, potential, energy conversions).

Students are each given one card numbered 1 through 26 (more or less can be added to suit your classroom needs, occasionally I just have some students take more than one card) that contains a question and the answer. Each of the numbered cards corresponds to the question number on the worksheet. Students are to find a partner in the room, ask their question and receive an answer from the other student. If the partner gets it right, they are to immediately write the answer down on their worksheet to record which cards they have seen. If they don't get it right on the first try, the questioner reviews how to get the right answer with them and they answer again. Once the partner has gotten it, the other person asks their question. Once both partners have been questioned and given an answer, they swap cards and find another partner in the room. They repeat until all questions have been answered on the sheet.

Includes the worksheet and printable note cards with questions and answers

Kinetic/potential energy
Speed, distance, time equations
Energy conversions (For example: mechanical energy to electrical energy)

Short answer

My students love this review game and it really gets students to become the teachers when they support each other in the learning process. Gets students moving around and talking constructively on the topics.
Helpful tip: I laminated my cards for future use
