This is a close-up. This is the finished product of an assignment I did with first graders. They researched a winter animal using pebble go. They filled out a graphic organizer and then typed those words onto a word document. They then copied those words into Tagxedo.com. Tagxedo.com makes a word cloud into almost any shape.
This is so neat. You upload a picture of yourself, and then add words and it makes this sort of thing. If we took the pictures and the computer teacher would let us do this in the computer lab, this could be really interesting. Maybe as a scrapbook accompaniment to the 8th grade project??
