Lesson Planet is a phenomenal resource for finding new ideas and lessons for the classroom. What makes Lesson Planet so unique is that many of the lessons found are complete with worksheets, detailed instructions, and they are aligned to content standards. It is the only lesson resource that I gladly pay for, and it is worth every penny!
