This week we are exploring a great resource that allows students to quickly and creatively create sets of digital trading cards. Digital trading cards are a great project idea for a topic in any subject area. It allows students to build writing and research skills in a fun and interesting way.



This trading card creator is available as a web based site and as an app for iOS and Android. On the main page you will see an overview of the creator tool along with a lesson bank of Common Core aligned lessons that use the trading card creator. Click on the orange button to get started.


The trading card creator will open in a new window, enter your name to begin.


You can then choose what type of card set you would like to make or you can create your own.


Depending on the card set you choose, your cards will be generated with different areas. The process is very clear and guides the students through several areas with each card.



Once the card has all the information, students can add a picture and then click finish editing.



Students can create up to eight cards in a set. They can print the cards or save the cards as a PDF that be used later or displayed digitally.

I hope you explore Trading Card Creator with your students as a fun way to get them to research and write about important topics.
