Wili The Word Wizard’s Science Dictionary is a fabulous site. This site offers science vocabulary, including definitions and a visual representation of the word. For example: the word volcano…
As you can see the definition is provided as well as a picture of Augustine volcano in Alaska. Students are able to enhance learning by not only learning the definition of a word but by gaining a visual representation of the word.
Wili The Word Wizard’s Science Dictionary is a creation of the Hawaii Department of Education so obviously the focus of the site is on the standards for the State of Hawaii. However, Wili The Word Wizard’s Science Dictionary could be an additional resource to enhance and reinforce the learning in any elementary science classroom. It is worth checking out.
