Sports Trading Cards

For an activity that would be very motivating to kids interested in sports, check out the Kids World Sports Trading Card creator. Kids World Sports is a documentary series on PBS geared toward tweens- though the card creator can skew younger- featuring kids striving toward excellence in particular sports. If you are interested in further exploration, other areas of the site showcase some sporty kids' stories.

Language Lens:
  • The activity targets the skill of association, as backgrounds, animations, pictures, words and sounds can be pieced together to create a trading card. Kids can be asked why they are selecting elements in order to elicit causal connections.
