After using the different programs to make word clouds I have thought of a few different ways to utilize this newly aquired skill in the classroom.
The students could use this as a get to know you activity similar to ours. They could create a word cloud that tells the class about their family, what they like to do and where they are from. They could also use word clouds to practice their spelling words. They could even use word clouds for a social studies project. The students could create a word cloud containing adjectives describing a different country or culture that they are learning about.
Using word clouds would be an interesting twist that would allow the students to use creativity in the classroom
