I’ve shared some ways that word clouds can be used in the classroom, and here’s another activity that works for all ages and subject areas. Find a website that you are planning on sharing with students. This could be an informational text on a science topic or simply a current events article.
Copy and paste the website URL into the online tool Tagxedo. This website will create a word cloud using text from that website.
Ask your students:
- What might this website be about?
- What keywords standout?
- What people, places or things might be important?
Visit Tagxedo’s website to see this tool in action!
