Picture Me with Word Clouds

Fifth graders created word clouds using an internet based program called Tagxedo.  Word clouds are visual depictions of text. These "clouds" give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. The student wrote descriptive words for themselves.  These lists of words and self photos were then transformed into word clouds using Tagxedo.    The descriptive word clouds end up making the shape of their face.
