Trading Cards


Want a new format for documenting historical figures in your elementary or middle school classes? In this format, students will create trading cards that explain the major information for each individual. Originally intended for studying the Explorers in the "Age of Exploration," this project can be used alongside other topics such as: Inventors, Founding Fathers, Presidents, Revolutionary War Figures, Civil War Leaders, etc.

I find that this is a great way for students to create biographical summaries. Enjoy creating and learning with this trading card project!
