iPad - Reading Comprehension - Character Trading Card

iPad Technology Integration - Reading Comprehension Trading Card

Teachers integrate technology into the classroom curriculum by having students use the iPad and Trading Cards app to help students reinforce their reading comprehension and summarization skills.

Students demonstrate their reading comprehension and summarize their understanding of a character by creating a trading card. Students use the free iPad app "Trading Card" to share the most important information about a real or fictional character. Students can print, fold, and share their trading cards with other students.

Grades 2+
