The Wonder Wheel is a visual concept map in Google. It’s a great tool to find or define a research topic. To use Wonder Wheel, perform a regular search in Google (link above).

  • Click on “Show options” (in tiny letters under the search box)
  • Scroll down to view all of the options in the left column
  • Click on “Wonder Wheel” instead of the default “Standard view”
  • You’ll see a circle with your search words in the middle & radiating out from it, lines connected to related words or phrases
  • Click on one of the related words or phrases to get another circle with more lines radiating out from it, connected to other related words or phrases
