Best educational free resource site

These sites can provide teachers with free resources to help them reach children in a variety of subject areas. They also can help provide remediation and/or accelerated learning opportunities. There are a lot of Internet sites that offer such materials, but only a few that are directed at the k-12 educator and without charge.

A note, you may have to register for some of these sites. Always make sure that the registration is only for the site and won’t be sold. I have noted that was good to register on sites I frequent because they provided me updates that I would have missed otherwise. Either way, I suggest you create an email address for just such sites and not use your personal one.

If you have additional sites to recommend please do so.

Global Warming by Alan Haskvitz

Whether or not you believe global warming exists, the teachable moment it represents is a major plus for integrating lessons in math, science, language arts, social studies and economics.  To help, I’ve assembled some quality sites that offer free resources.
