People Change Communities: A Trading Card Collection for 3rd Grade Social Studies! Over 40 cards highlighting important figures that influenced communities throughout history.

Who is This For?

3rd Grade Students

Teachers looking for engaging resources for teaching students about important citizens and historical figures.

What is Included?

Over 40 "trading cards" that can be used for sorts, timelines, and in Social Studies journals.

The collection focuses on important individuals who have changed or influenced communities. The set includes ALL of the individuals listed in the 3rd grade TEKS (Texas Social Studies Standards) along with some from the 2nd grade TEKS. I've grouped them into 6 sets (each with 5-8 cards) based on how they are listed in the TEKS, but the cards can be mixed and matched based on your needs.

Set 1: Activists and Humanitarians

(Helen Keller, Clara Barton, Juliette Gordon Low, Harriet Tubman, Hector P. Garcia, Ruby Bridges, Benjamin Banneker, and Martin Luther King Jr.)

Set 2: Inventors and Trailblazers

(Benjamin Franklin, Louis Pasteur, Jonas Salk, Cyrus McCormick, Ellen Ochoa, Maria Mitchell, Phillis Wheatley, and George Washington Carver)

Set 3: Entrepreneurs

(Sam Walton, Milton Hershey, Bill Gates, Wallace Amos, Mary Kay Ash, and Henry Ford)

Set 4: Explorers and Developers

(Daniel Boone, Christopher Columbus, John "Danny" Olivas, Juan de Onate, and Pierre-Charles L-Enfant)

Set 5: Heroes and Patriots

(Todd Beamer, James A. Lovell, The Four Chaplains, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, Abraham Lincoln)

Set 6: Authors

(Phillis Wheatley, Bill Martin, Jr, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Carmen Lomas Garza, Tomie de Paolo, Kadir Nelson, Benjamin Banneker, W.E.B. Du Bois)

Each card includes a picture of the individual and basic facts such as their date of birth and accomplishments.

Why Buy?

Texas Social Studies includes a ton of important historical figures and it's not always easily to find the information you need. These cards provide handy information at your fingertips and can be used by students in so many ways!
