Baroque King/Queen Playing Cards 6th grade

This was a project we ended the year with in 6th grade. We were studying Rembrandt in the Baroque period.

When the students were finished their portraits, they worked on designing their own playing card.

The first step was to draw a queen, King, Jack, or Joker on one half of the tagboard card.

We used a rectangle template for the outline. I provided pics of Queens and kings as well as playing cards for inspiration.

We used tracing paper with a pencil to copy one half of the card and then flip the tracing paper over and redraw over the pencil lines to transfer an identical figure on the other half of the card.
