The Visual Dictionary
This goes far beyond "speak and spell."
Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8, 9-12

The Visual Dictionary uses annotated images and animations to explain each part of an object in detail.
The site can be navigated by using the embedded search engine, browsing the alphabetical list of words, choosing from the list of six thematic topics or browsing the thumbnail list of images for each topic. The site is available in three languages, English, Spanish and French.
The Visual Dictionary can be used by teachers and students as a quick reference. It would be especially useful for ESL students for mastery of the language. The terms are categorized into six thematic topics: vegetal biology, animal biology, human body, music, transport, and clothing. The site uses images to explain objects and each of the objects defined on the site provides annotations that identify details of the object and a short description of each part at the bottom of the page. Visitors will find information on everything from the detailed structure of a tree to the description of a police officers uniform. Additionally, a few tips for using the site in an educational setting are offered in the help section.
