Presidential Wordles

My 5th grade students are studying the US Government and Presidents so we are making Wordles to learn some facts about the Presidents. First we copy and paste some biographical information about each president from the USA for Kids web site in the Wordle creator. The students change fonts, colors, layout, and can even remove words from the image. The images are pulled into a word-processing software such as Microsoft Word and the students pick a few key words from their Wordle to explain how it relates to the president and we add an image of each president, too.

We will also be creating some character trait Wordles as they finish novels in the classroom.
