This site contains a variety of lesson plans and activities from many
different disciplines. Some sample worksheets have also been included
as reinforcement activities. One special part of this site is the
evaluation of educational software. Along with the different types
of software that is available, company information is included so that
you can contact them.
This website provides an excellent way for teachers to focus their efforts. There are 900 lesson plans for students K-12, including projects, and activities. Many of the lesson plans also integrate the use of the internet as a resource. This may be useful to teachers as well as myself in my own professional development, because getting students involved with the internet especially at a young age is very important .

There are topics such as home schooling, technology, health and fitness found on the webpage. The page allows you to explore other webpages and helps in finding exactly what you are looking for. Each subject listed on the webpage links you to another webpage having to do with that specific content area so you can further your search.

source materials, lesson plans / classroom activities with a minimum of
site-to-site linking, and to provide an enjoyable and rewarding experience
for the teacher who is learning to use the Internet.
|SPICE (Stanford Program on International and Cross-cultural Education)
SPICE (Stanford Program on International and Cross-cultural Education),
offers the beginning teacher everything you need to teach about a topic,
including student handouts and lesson plans. More experienced teachers
introducing a new topic or trying out a new teaching strategy will find
teacher background information, interdisciplinary lessons, and tools and
strategies such as cognitive organizers, simulations, and cooperative group
activities. Even the most experienced teacher will find unique primary
and secondary resources to enhance your teaching. This is one of
those must see sites for all beginning teachers. The amount of resources
and information is amazing.
This site is useful for an overview of education. There are vaious
site for all parts of the educational community. There are helpful
lesson plans from teachers all across the country. Articles make
up a big section of the News/ Eyes on School and the curriculum sites.
Financial planning for teachers gives good ideas of ways to handle their
money. There is also a site for administrators to chat and send articles.
There is also one site that lists books in education by ages and is useful
for parents and teachers to assign books to children.
|Ron MacKinnon's Educational Bookmarks http://juliet.stfx.ca/people/stu/x94emj/bookmark.html#top
I liked this site great deal and found it very helpful. The reason
why I say this is because I used it to find all the sites that I used on
the project. It also had complements on what sites would be more
and less helpful and it was catagorized to help you. I thought that
other then color it was kind of boring, but it was full of links to great
sites so I thought that it was worth a visit. It gave links to sites
with hundreds to thousands of lesson plans, so if that is what you are
looking for it is a great place to visit.
|Gateway to Educational Materials
There are over 2000 collections of education resources available through
this site. You can find lesson plans, curriculum units and other
resources with the use of keyword browse, subject browse or simple search
interface. Selection can be found by grades, educational level and
|Web66: International School Web Site Registry
This site catalogues schools, both domestic and foreign, that have web pages. The main page includes a site map that is searchable. You can choose between continents or, if you scroll down the page, you will find a list of countries that link you to that country's registry. You can also choose to search for schools that cater to special interest areas. Clicking on a region or portion of the site map sends you the registry for that region. Best of all, you can register your own schools web site.
As a resource, this list could be invaluable. Web66
allows teachers and students to connect with schools that are publishing
their own web site. This could give insight into how you can use
your schools web site, or even ideas that could be used to construct one.
Also, Web66 puts you in
contact with other schools from around the world. You classroom or
school now has access to the resources of many countries and educational
structures. This brings the notion of global education into the classroom.
This is a site that is dedicated to making educational resources on the internet easier to find and utilize. It catalogues sites and resources that have been recommended the best for use in the classroom and even offers examples of internet use in the classroom. Ed's Oasis provides teachers with three content areas for internet resources. The first area, called The Treasure Zone, offers reviewed sites that are either interactive, involving student participation with other student on the web, and informative sites that can be utilized for research. Teacher resources are available in a teacher's version of the Treasure Zone. The area includes links to lesson plans, educational news, and curriculum resources. The second area details the guidelines used to review sites for the Oasis. This is very important information for the teacher. It is important to know exactly what the curriculum that was used to review these sites and how the standards match up to your school's curriculum and mission. The third section offers the results of the utilization of internet resources in the classroom by other teachers and students. This can be a starting point for the utilization of the web in your classroom.
This site takes the drudgery of searching for good sites to use in the
classroom out of you hands. Instead of being bogged down in search
engines, Ed's reviews can lead you to sites that have been already reviewed
by professionals. This makes the utilization of resources easier
and less time consuming. Though you should never rely on one source
for internet resources, Ed's
Oasis is a good starting point.
|The Global Schoolhouse
Global Schoolhouse is a great site because it provides resources for
teachers, parents, and students. It allows teachers the opportunity to
connect their classrooms with other classrooms around the world. Educators
can either take part in or develop global learning projects. This site,
also, has many articles about using technology in the classroom. This site
holds contests for students and teachers. It features a resource kit that
aids in using the world wide web which can aid teachers in teaching thier
class how to surf the web. Teachers can become members of the Global Schoolhouse
mailing list which will keep them on top of current issues in education.
|Virtual Field Trips
Virtual Field Trips is a site that I think many teachers could use in
their classrooms. Many students never get the chance to visit the Great
Pyramids of Egypt or even The Grand Canyon. This site would allow the students
to take a virtual field trip. The field trip is designed by experts that
add reality to the trip by even including pit stops. If there is a field
trip that a teacher would like his or her students to take, but it is unavailable,
the teacher can request that they make a custom field trip for thier class.
This site, also, includes links for general teacher resources and curriculum
|Great Educational Web Sites
This web site is absolutely amazing! It has so much information
and links right at your hands. This site is great for teachers and
parents. Inside it, it contains resources for teachers like how to
create rubrics, ask ERIC, e-mail discussion lists for educators, and much
more. Plus, it has other links for teachers on how to use the Internet.
Among these, there are also great links and resources for parents.
There are subject links for teachers that cover a broad range: History,
Humanities, Art, Music, Literature, Law, and much more. Also, there
are different links on museums which would be great for field trips.
This site contains so very much and is a wonderful site for teachers to
use because everything is there for them right there. It directs
any questions that a teacher might have to another link. Therefore,
one could always get an answer!
This is a website created by the University of Maryland. It is
very useful because it makes numerous things available. For instance
you can click on such great links as MDK-12, which is The Maryland K-12
Community. This site shows you K-12 resources specific to the state
of Maryland. Another example is K-12 Opportunities and Resources,
which gives you opportunities, resources, and projects for students.
For myself and for teachers a website like this is rather useful.
|The Hornbook and Beyond
This site provides a survey of nonfiction and reference resources for children. It discusses awards of children's books as well as what the award is given for. It teaches students and teachers how to evaluate nonfiction and reference materials. This is a wonderful site not only for teachers, but for anyone who wishes to learn more about how to pick great books for children. As a teacher, I would use this site quite often because it gives a listing of award winning books that are wonderful additions to a lesson or a classroom.
