The Trading Cards app from Read, Write, Think is a great FREE app that students can use to create and share trading cards for a variety of educational purposes.
The app supports multiple users so student work can be separated for safekeeping.
Flashcards can be created in a variety of categories:
- Fictional Person
- Real Person
- Fictional Place
- Real Place
- Vocabulary Words
Each category has guiding questions to assist the students in creating high quality trading cards. Students learn summarizing skills since they have to make the most important information fit onto the card.
Cards can be saved to the camera roll or emailed.
