As educators we are all into words. The Visual Thesaurus helps us discover the connections between those words. You simply type in the word and click the Look It Up button and you are given a map of words associated with the original word.

The above example shows the word education. It not only mapped out the word, it lets you listen the correct pronunciation. You also have the ability to print and share the diagram.This is a great way to get students learning about words.

On the negative side there is a small monthly charge of $2.95 to subscribe to this service. On the positive side, it is fun. Check it out at http://www.visualthesaurus.com/.
