It is very easy to quickly search a topic and get ideas from some of the lesson plans. For my student teaching seminar, we were required to share a web site that we have found helpful with the class. My professors, new and veteran teachers alike were all amazed by the resources provided by Lesson Planet and the ease in which they were obtained.
