GraphWords

Having just had quite an interesting flight with my two kids, I chose the word fly to try out GraphWords, a visual word web creator. I also thought that fly would make a rich web with all of its different meanings. Sure enough, the above is the image from the web I created. What you can’t see is the definitions that appear when hovering over any node. The nodes with no words are the different definitions of fly.

This site has obvious uses in the language arts classroom, especially with visual learners who struggle with text heavy classes.
