Lesson Planet is a great source for lesson plans that have been used successfully by other teachers. I've adopted and adapted so many of the lessons found through lessonplanet.com to suit the needs of my classes for the past two years, and have saved so much time not having to re-invent the wheel. Thanks to Lesson Planet, I've been able to evolve within this ever-evolving profession!
