Confession........I didn't touch my laptop alllllllll weekend!!! Not for one second!!! I was happily gardening and hanging with the fam but now have TONS of blog stalking and pinning to catch up on!!
I wanted to post a quick follow up to my Earth Day activities. I posted earlier about how I had each of my students write a letter to the Earth, kind of like their pledge to the Earth (you can see that HERE).
Well, we also made word clouds with Tagxedo. The kids loved these! I put them in groups of 3 and they each had to come up with a list of 10 words or phrases of things that we should do to help the Earth.....not just on Earth Day but every day. Then they got to type them in, along with their names, and made their word clouds. Of course the word cloud had to be a "earthy" shape (like a tree, leaf, Earth, flower..)
I still have a few more to print but they turned out super cute and the kids loved making them....especially picking the theme (color) and font! We hung them with our Earth letters.
I love Tagxedo!!! Have you used it??? I would LOVE some other ideas for using this fun tool in the classroom!!
Make every day Earth day!!! Thanks for popping by:)
