In all levels, students learn about the lives of saints and the great sacrifices many of them made for their faith. Our upper elementary students translated this learning into the creation of trading cards. They looked at examples of illuminated manuscripts and medieval religious iconography where they noticed the abundant use of gold and created their own saints portraits with gold embellishments. These portraits also incorporated identifying symbols of their saints. On the backs of the portraits the students incorporated stats for their saints, similar to the stats found on most trading cards.
