Primary Source Keynote Cards - Winter Months Holiday Template

History educators (or primary source lovers), here are a few animated Keynote cards to send, around the theme of Winter Month Holidays, that you can easily change out with your own photos.

To change out the images and keep the animation, download the Keynote file and tap the image that hangs below the slide “face”, then tap Replace to add a photo or primary source you’ve saved in Photos.

Thanks Cheryl. I'm sure a lot of these nice cards will be sent around this year (and in the years to come!)

Pretty crafty, my friend; thanks for sharing! I tried to use a "flip" to see if that build would be more natural, but what you've got is solid.

Thanks Mika! Yes, I played with those build choices but stayed with Cube. Wish I could find a smoother way. That opening of the envelope has been a bit of a challenge.

Thanks for sharing! Students where I live have just started their summer holidays, not winter, but I love these nonetheless!
