Second graders prepared by writing down the most important words from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's famous "I have a dream" speech. Following the steps below, they created word clouds that illustrate his message of peace and universal harmony.

  1. Type out each of your words in TextEdit.
  2. Highlight all of them and copy them by using the Menu, right-click, or Command C.
  3. Go to Tagxedo.com/app.html and click Load.
  4. Paste in your words and click Submit.
  5. Click the arrow by Shape to pick a shape that fits Dr. King's message.
  6. Click the arrow by Theme to pick a set of colors and fonts. You must use a blank background (to save ink).
  7. When finished, click Save/Share and then 1MP PNG. That will produce a big enough image for printing.
  8. Save it with the name of your number.
