Learning domain specific vocabulary and remembering key concepts can be challenging for students of all grade levels. There is so much content they are exposed to in every subject area that providing kids with study tools can help them boost their comprehension. Trading Cards is a fun free app that asks students to think deeply about historical figures, characters from a book, events, or ideas, and lets them design trading cards for each key concept. Perfect for elementary and middle schoolers, this app is a great comprehension tool to use before and after school.
