I like to use technology in new ways and came up with the idea of using Power Point to create trading cards. A student could make one slide, duplicate it, print it in handout form, cut them out, and then trade with other students. You can use any curricular area from math to science to social studies. As long as students create a different slide, they can trade information. I am working with my third grade on incorporating Bloom's Taxonomy into these trading cards. Each card will represent a different level of Blooms. The students will print them in handout form, and trade. This time, they will need to read each others before trading to make sure they don't have the same answers. Attached is the outline for doing this with their measurement unit.
