[b-hebrew] Hebrew Object Tree - Request For Help

Hi all,

as a vocabulary aid for students of Hebrew I want to make a pictoral tree of common objects in their natural 
groups. You know? Remember those books we used to have 
as children where one page would have a title of 'wild 
animals' and have pictures of tigers, lions and giraffes 
and the next page would have a title of 'pets' and have 
pictures of dogs and cats.

Does anyone know of any publically available online 
attempts at something similar that I could start 
building on?

Also, does anyone have any suggestions for attested 
Hebrew group names together with a few concrete 
examples. For example, one natural group that springs 
to mind is:

Sons of Isreal: Reuben, Simeon, Judah etc.

Another could be:

False gods: Baal, Ashtoreth etc.

Another could be:

Nations/Gentiles: Egypt, Syria, Edom, Moab etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
