We are beginning a study of US monuments as part of our social studies curriculum. After reading articles in Actively Learn, paper books, and books in the Epic! app about different US monuments, pairs of students each chose 1 monument. They completed a Trading Card about that monument. Based on what was included in most of the readings, I told students to skip the "event" and "effect" boxes because I felt that would have been difficult for students to complete without further research.
