Lesson Planning Sites Part 4
Here are five websites to help Busy Educators with their lesson planning.

The Gateway to Educational Materials
http://www.thegateway.org

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Educationís National Library of Education, The Gateway to Educational Materials contains over 10,000 education resources and materials found on various federal, state, university, non-profit, and commercial Internet sites. Browse through the curriculum database lists by subject, keyword or search by subject, keyword, title, or grade level.

The Mountain Brook City Schools Integration Pages are an extensive collection of K-6 sites organized by subjects and grade levels. The pages were created by taking their existing curriculum and finding sites to enhance it.

Mr. Kís Links 2 Learning 4 Educators
http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Column/9885/

I really enjoy seeing educational sites evaluated by letter grades. Teacher Mr. K does just that! This is a uniquely organized gateway site for educators. Links, arranged in nearly 70 very intuitive categories, are identified, briefly described, and subjectively rated for ease of use. Ease of navigating the site is a definite plus to preview the nearly 5,000 links available here.
