Character Card Games

NCTE has created many materials for teachers to use that allow students to create different products that resemble popular entertainment. I was looking at their site, when I found this:

A character Trading Card Creator

This software seems perfect to use for middle school students who might enjoy the option to translate one of the characters from a book they read into a playing card.

Have fun with the site.

The possibilities are limited with the software, but the teens could have fun creating it on their own as well.

This is simple, but fun and coould be interesting and thought-provoking. It could also be useful in a creative writing workshop with kids, having them make character cards for their own stories.

Could also be useful to have kids make cards for themselves. Aren't we all characters in our own stories?
