With the help of representation of a term, it becomes easy to understand and help develop deeper word comprehension. Hence, learner’s can be asked to construct a picture, pictograph, or symbolic representation of the new terms. You can either use Google Drawings or Google Slides.
Students can be easily engaged in activities which would help them add more to their knowledge. Actually, better engagement will help them retain information for longer period. For this, they can make use of various tools to create original content, related to terms. For example, they can form some posters using Pic Collage.
