topics that the site has information and ideas on, for instance, earthquakes.
It then lists activities and additional sites that will help teachers plan
|The Digital Classroom
This site provides activities and lesson plans that correspond to national
history standards. The links that are most interesting are those
that show students how to create their personal school archive. It
shows students what background information they need, as well as step-by-step
instructions for completing the task.
|The Lessons Plan Page
This is another well organized site that I visited. It is set
up in a fashion that allows you to pick and click on what you want to see
quite easily. It offers a java enhanced version as well as a non-java
enhanced version. It has all kinds of lesson plans for a variety
of grade levels. What I did not like about this site is although
it did have a lot of lesson plans, I read a couple of them and did not
like some of those that I read. The other thing that I did not like
about this page was that there is that there is a lot of advertising banners
all along it.
|Teachers Net Site, The Online Resource
This website contains options to search for various topics, one in particular
is Lesson Plans. Under the heading of Lesson Plan you are given the
option to choose a variety of subjects and grade levels. Once highlighted
there is an expanded list of many lesson plans that describe the procedures
in great detail of carrying out the lessons. Other topics included
in the website are classroom research, technology resources, professional
development, educator resources, reference materials, and financial matters.
After selecting a specific topic you can choose what you want to research

or read lesson plans that have worked for you or other teachers. They also

|Lesson Plans and Resources for Social Studies Teachers
This site is actually intended for secondary education teachers.
As an elementary school teaching canadate, I would not use this site but
if I was a Social studies teacher in secondary school I would use this
site. The reason why I would is because it is a fantastic site.
The links are easy to follow to various different topics. The topics
include: Lesson Plans and Teaching Strategies,Online Activities,Teaching
Current Events, Other Social Studies Resources, National Council for the
Social Studies, Newsgroups and Mailing Lists, Social Studies School Service,
Educational Standards and Curriculum Frameworks, and a section on What's
New This Month. I really liked the site because it is updated regularly
and was not made and left. Plus the site has won various awards in
teaching, and awards for educational web sites.
|McREL’s Internet Connections-Lesson Plans and Activities
This is a wonderful resource for teachers of all grades. The main
page is broken up into 8 subjects. My interest lies in reading, therefore,
I clicked onto the Language Arts title. The next page that came up
was amazing. It was a list of 29 possible areas in which to get sample
lesson plans. McREL’s web site is an award-winning education site,
and after spending over an hour looking around I can see why. This
site also explains how school districts may fit standards-based education
into the instructional time available to them. McREL’s also provides
the names and summaries of links to Internet resources for lesson plans,
activities and curriculum resources-linked with corresponding subject-area
content standards. This site proves to be a valuable resource center
for all teachers.
|The Collaborative Lesson Archive
A notable site for teachers of all grade levels. This archive
is a collection of lesson plans submitted by any teacher that is conncted
to this site. Over 10,000 educators view this web site each week.
This site is first broken down into grade levels and then again by subject
areas. Once the grade level and subject are chosen, a list of lesson
plans appear by title, name of issuer and date submitted. You then
have the opportunity to take a look and print out any lesson plan that
interests you. I chose kindergarten reading and came up with a list
of over 300 lesson plans! I found a fun and educational activity
to use with first graders thanks to a lesson plan created by Fannie Sexton
called Chocolate. The lesson plan is broken down into steps so that
the activity is easy to read and follow. It gives the general topics/themes,
prerequisite lessons, objectives, materials, stimulus questions, and much
more. This site is another helpful web site in which teachers should
|Endangered Species Lesson Plans
This site has incorporated numerous lesson plans dealing with endangered species. There is something for all age groups, from K-12. Each plan is listed by title and followed by a short summary, so that you may read what the site is about before connecting. This is a great site for children to learn about wildlife and the species that are struggling to survive. Pictures of the animals are also included. There are also many links from this site.
This website helps teachers with lesson plans and there are other links
on the web to connect to that teach teachers how to create their own site.
This would be a very creative and interactive way to get children interested
in the computer.
|Judi Harris' Network-Based Educational Activity
This site contains several ideas for classroom
activities integrating technology. The activities span several subject
areas and many age groups. Teachers could use the ideas on this page
to integrate technology into their own classrooms, or they could generate
their own ideas based on the ones in this site.
|AskEric Lesson Plans
Many lesson plans can be found by subject through this web site.
Teachers can also submit lesson plans to AskEric. This site
also links teachers to other sources of lesson plans. It’s a great
place to start a search for lesson plans.
The Awesome Library web site contained lesson
plans for grades Kindergarden through 12. The way this web site works is
kind of like a library, you pick a subject, a grade level, and a topic,
and the computer tries to set you up with a lesson plan based of your information.
I thought that this was a easy way to locate lesson plans and would be
great for parents and teachers to take advantage.
|Pathway 2000 Lesson Plans
I especially liked this one because it was filled
with lesson plans that deal with life experiences. These plans help reinforce
to students what they learn from their life experiences. Of course it had
different lesson plans for different grade levels and it covers a wide
variety of choices of experiences.
|Microsoft in K-12 Education
This site focuses on teaching and learning with technology.
The site shows how technology in the classroom can enhance students learning
and increase teacher productivity. There are many articles under
different sites within the microsoft site, like the K- 12 connection.
Lesson plans are shared by teachers for every subject. There are
teacher guides that go with the lesson plans. There are also real
stories from different schools about how to use technology, from teachers
|MSN Microsoft Encarta
This site is full of links to great teacher resources. There's
|Discovery Channel School
This site allows you to enter the grade, subject, and unit of interest.
It then gives you ideas, activities, suggested readings, and additional
sites to help guide your lesson plans. It also provides special thematic
monthly unit ideas. The unit this month is
The eye of the storm.
This site was a network of educational resourses
and materials intended for educating younger students. This site includes
many lesson plans on several different areas of study that would be useful
for a kindergarden teacher in helping them gain ideas for classroom activities.
The activities and lessons that I looked at appear to be fun, interesting,
and effective at driving home a point.
|PEC Lesson Plans
This web site was posted by students at Virginia
Tech and is filled with many great lesson plans. They have the page set
up for helping teachers come up with topics and ideas to teach their students.
After you chose a topic they have posted lesson plans relevant to that
topic for a variety of grade levels.
