Trading Cards

Social Studies/Art Activity

What better way to have children share information about themselves than to make trading cards.



  1. Have each child measure and cut an index or oak tag card 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

  2. Each child should paste his or her photograph on one side of the card.

  3. Have children write information about themselves on the back. A sample is shown below.

  4. Have children decorate the cards. Then laminate the cards or cover them with clear contact paper.

  5. Have children share their cards with one another.

sports team)
