Each section of the trading card must be filled out and a photo of your research area must be included. When your card is done, you will click "share it" and save it to the camera roll on the iPad. 

Turning it in

You will turn your trading cards in by using the Google Drive app. Your teacher will send you an email invitation to your school email to join your hour's folder. You need to open this through your email on the computer. After you click on the link, you will save the folder to your drive. Once you've done that, log in to the Google Drive app on the iPad using your school email. Once logged in, click on your hour's folder and then click the plus sign on the top right, chose upload pictures and video from the drop down menu. Once you've chosen this, look for your trading cards, select them, and then click the blue check mark to upload the to the folder. Remember to log out of Google Drive before you put your iPad up.
