Thing 14: Explore a Tool of Your Choice

Wordle Rules!   By using Wordle, I’ve discovered a new way to incorporate an old idea, namely word walls, into an Info Lit lesson.  As our 4th Grade students build their information literacy skills throughout the year, they are introduced to many new and familiar words related to developing their research skills.  So, for a culminating lesson, they will be asked to define, combine, refine, and otherwise solve the virtual puzzle created by Wordle’s Java applet. Cool!

Technical pointer for Mac users:
•    Once you’ve created your Wordle page, select print, then save as the page as a PDF.
