Word Sift

Try Word Sift for an interactive, engaging way to introduce and help your students grasp content related words or challenging vocabulary.

Word Sift is an interactive word cloud generator. Simply copy and paste your desired text into the text box, and a word cloud will be created for you. Then the fun begins! Each word becomes a link to images, videos, definitions, antonyms, and synonyms. The words are automatically sorted alphabetically for you, but you can also sort them from rare to common and common to rare. Here is the word cloud I got when I pasted the text from the Advanced Biology curriculum map, BIO.9a

When I clicked on the word organism, here are some Google images that were found.

AND, here is what came up in the visual Thesaurus!
