An interesting way to create visuals using text. Students could type a poem (or a line or phrase from a poem) or a piece of prose and then draw the words with their finger.
You can use your finger to create randomly shaped lines or draw horizontal, vertical, or diagonal lines. You can choose from a selection of font styles, sizes, and colors and determine whether or not you want the lines of text to repeat and how much space between the words.
