Graph Words - Create a Visual Thesaurus

Graph Words is a simple visual thesaurus. To use it just enter a word and a web of related words will appear. You can click on any word in that web to generate another web of words related to the one you clicked on. You can click until you run out of words. Each web can be saved as an image.

Applications for Education
Graph Words could be a good resource for students in need of some help in selecting new words to introduce to their writing. Create some word webs for the words your students use most often then download the word web images to display in your classroom.
