The first step for this project was to develop a list of words. I provided students with some ideas such as animals, food, holidays, or school subjects but they were free to create the list on what they chose. I had them record this list on Microsoft Word. When the list was complete, students had to copy and paste the list from Word into one of the word cloud programs. Wordle.net creates a more simplistic word cloud while Wordart.com allowed for more creative freedom. Once students had their words in the program then they could edit the text style, colors, and layout.
