TAGXEDO. If you like Wordle, you'll love Tagxedo. Just upload your picture (That's me!), add some descriptive words, and voila! Have students create a short speech or have them add the picture to their notebooks along with a paragraph or personal narrative. This took me five minutes to create.
creating timelines for students. perhaps it can be a collective assignment. as we go through a time period i can ask students to ad to the timeline important facts, dates, events, that way its more interactive. could assign groups of students particular years in a decade and have them find pictures/information to create their section of the timeline. would be a good start or finish to a unit
