If you’re a teacher and you would like sports cards or other playing cards for your classroom, we’re here to support you. You can request cards for your classroom through this link. Simply fill out the form and we’ll do our best to get you the cards you want.
If you aren’t sure how to use your cards in the classroom, we have a number of lesson plans using different types of cards that you can use as-is or use as inspiration to create your own lesson plan. Feel free to look through them and take whatever you need for your classroom. If you do create your own lesson plan and are willing to share it with other teachers, feel free to send it to us and we will add it to our growing list of lesson plans.

Lastly, if you are able to send us photos showing how you used the cards in your classroom (no photos that include the students’ faces, please), we’d love to get them. All the cards that we send to teachers were generously donated to us by others and it’s always great for them to see how their donations are being used. It also helps us acquire more card donations so we can send even more cards out to teachers and other organizations that can use them to help kids.
