Product Description

Create a Trading Card for a book character, historical person, athlete, celebrity, entrepreneur, singer, musician or actor/actress.
• Creating trading cards for their favorite story characters will challenge students to think more deeply about what they read or even watch in movies or on television.
• By answering a series of questions, students zero in on what’s obvious and not so obvious about a character or person. Not only will they describe the character’s appearance and actions, but also probe for thoughts, feelings, and motivations.
• The cards also offer a chance for students to consider their own impressions: What is likeable or not likeable about a character and what personal connections might students make?
This guide uses step-by-step instructions and screenshots to show teachers and students how to use the website. It includes an activity and marking scheme.

  7. I will use this to have my students create cards on notable people in technology after we finish our unit on online research. While the trading cards can be created through a site without this lesson, I appreciate the clear directions that come with this resource.
