So how do these trading cards work? Do they do them like book reports? Or do they write about themselves?
I love that book. When I taught 8th grade U.S. history I had my students do trading cards on colonial leaders. They loved it and learned a lot in the process. Since they have to condense the info on the card, they had to choose what they thought were the most important or outstanding facts about each person. We also did them on each of the 13 colonies - sorta as if the colony was a person. These were used in a mock chamber of commerce meeting where each colony was trying to get more people to move there.
