I created a wordle and a mosaic. The wordle can help students to find author's purpose in a text, they can also criticize and find out what is important for them after writing a document. It is a tool that helps to find the values and purposes in the written format. I could use it for Social Studies for samples of letters of important people to determine their purpose and function in a specific period of time.
The mosaic in this case is a thematic unit on birds where students can identify adaptations. I can use it also to play guessing games. Mosaics can be done in Science to represent habitats, biomes, moon phases, etc.
Students could create this projects and explain them to the class. I think there are many other ways to use these applications. Can you think of some?
