OneLook Reverse Dictionary

OneLook Reverse Dictionary | Links for Units of Inquiry in PYP | Scoop.it
The OneLook reverse dictionary is a great tool to get students thinking about how they explain what words mean. Unlike most dictionaries which gives you the meaning of a word, this one will give you the word as long as you can give the correct meaning. This is a great skill to develop as a language learner.
