Thing 6.....Mashups and 3rd Party Sites

Trading Card
Originally uploaded by jessij122
I may be off the mark on this one. But, I was thinking it would be fun to create a trading card set of popular authors. The kids could use it as a resource when looking for good books to check out. I know currently in my school library I often see kids asking someone (ie myself, the librarians, or another student) for a good book to read. I think if there were author or even book trading cards the kids could consult the set to choose a book.
I am thinking of using the trading card feature to have my students create a set of presidential trading cards. Normally I have them choose one president and create a power point. I think the trading cards would be a really neat way to get the children to invest in their learning!
I really liked using these fun features and creating neat projects to incorporate into my classroom! I thought they were pretty user friendly as well!
