Word clouds are a fun way to introduce your topics, present and teach vocabulary, and find out what the most used words in a certain text are.
Here are some websites where you can create your own word clouds. You can make one using the URL from a website, as I did for these examples (most of which I made using the “2 Minute Topic Talk” page from this site), or you can also cut and paste a list of words. On most of these sites, you have many options for shapes, fonts, colors and layouts. Try them and if you need help, ask in class.
