    Say it with a Word Cloud

    Google defines a word cloud as “an image composed of words used in a particular text or subject, in which the size of each word indicates its frequency or importance.”  The word cloud above is from a 1991 report where my sister interviewed my grandpa about his service in the United States Army during WWII. By looking at the image, you will notice certain words are larger and bolder because they appear more frequently in the report.

    Google Sheets lends itself to collaboration because of the rows and columns. It keeps information organized. As a teacher, you could share a Google Sheet with edit privileges and ask each student to enter their name and add an image. For example, students could add an image to describe their mood, research project idea… the options are endless. read more
