Visual Thesaurus

Did you know the Virtual Library offers an online thesaurus?

Thinkmap Visual Thesaurus does far more than showing you related words.  It goes way beyond a thesaurus in book format. Check out some of these features:

  1. Word for the day – improve your vocabulary.
  2. Improve your spelling by using the “Spelling Bee
  3. Love crossword puzzles? Each month Visual Thesaurus provides a crossword puzzle. Figure out the hidden word chain and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt!
  4. For teachers – there are lesson plans to use in the classroom. Teachers can signup to have them emailed directly to them.
  5. For writers – you can add a link to Visual Thesaurus to access the database directly on your browser or webpage.
  6. Language Lounge – a monthly column for word lovers.

These are just a few of the features available so be sure to check out the rest of them!
