Galaxy Trading Cards

Galaxy Trading Cards

This collection of nine trading cards focuses on the three types of galaxies: spiral, elliptical, and irregular. Each card displays a color image of a galaxy on one side and describes the galaxy's type, its location within a constellation, and interesting facts on the other side. The Hubble Space Telescope card includes interesting facts, as well as suggestions for using the cards, such as educational games. The trading cards are available for download in PDF format.
