Mrs. Dachelet's READ 180 fifth graders used the website Big Huge Labs to create character trading cards related to one of the books that they finished reading in class. What a fun way to share what they learned from their reading and advertise their books to others.
To create your own trading card, go to www.bighugelabs.com. Click on the trading card option. Upload a picture that represents your character, add a title and subtitle, and then fill in something about your character in the description. You can decide on the card's color and placement of the picture. You can even add up to seven symbols on your card, if you choose.
Once you are finished, you can save your card. See my example below. You can also try using some of the other creative options at Big Huge Labs.
