**When you have completed TASK ONE, be sure to get your information checked over by Mrs. Carson. You will then move onto TASK TWO to complete your Word Cloud.**



TASK TWO: Create a word cloud of your form of government.

1) A word cloud is a text visual to show your understanding of the topic you’ve been researching. A word cloud represents the key words and characteristics of the topic.

2) Here is how to create a word cloud: Head to either WordSift.org or Tagul.com! Follow the site’s instructions to create your own word cloud. You need to enter text that is all about your form of government. 

   *Your word cloud should represent the definition, what life is like for citizens, and how that system of government works. 

    *You should enter information that you have found from your Task 1 section of your WebQuest – parts A-E. Then play around with the text, color, and shape options.

3) You need to PRINT your word cloud (at home or in the library for 10 cents). You will use your printed copy during your presentation to your group. Does not need to be in color.
