This is a fun activity that allows you to get to know your students and to avoid reading the same student questionnaire over and over again.
Wordle.net is a brilliant website that uses texts to create word clouds. By the end of the exercise, students have a beautiful piece of digital art.
This handout contains a step by step guide to creating a beautiful piece of word art. It also contains a first day questionnaire for your students to fill out. You can replace my answers with your own answers.
