Dictionary and Thesaurus

What’s that word on the tip of your tongue? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to two books that will ensure you’re never at at a loss for words: the dictionary and the thesaurus. You’ll learn the difference between the two as you find out about some of the important information you can find in a dictionary, as well as some other stuff you probably weren’t even looking for. You’ll discover how to find your word quickly and easily as Tim and Moby lead you through a sample entry. Then, you’ll find out where to go if you’re looking for just the right word, and why having both books on your shelf is a sure way to better writing. So turn off your spell-check--after watching this, you might not even need it!
