Read Write Think has a free online resource that can be used in a variety of classrooms–it is a Trading Card Creator. Students can create trading cards for real people, fictional characters, objects, places and more. Read Write Think has also provided lesson plans for grades 3-12 to give examples of how the Trading Cards can be used in the classroom. These trading cards could be a great review activity, or could be used as a meet and greet involving people from a historical event, or could even be a way to get students interacting with each other as they learn the properties of the different minerals they are studying in science class.
