This research style learning card prompts learners to gather data about 26 different musical composers of the past.  Info prompts to include the following information.

Who (name)

An image of each composer is provided.

For your convenience, there are two identical cards per page.  Prepare this resource by printing out the file, cutting apart the cards on the solid black line, and then folding them on the dotted lines.  Glue the card closed with its blank sides together.  Laminate for longevity and a finished look, if desired.
