Whether you are a public school teacher or are homeschooling your kids, coming up with new lesson plans can be a chore. Luckily, the Internet can be a teacher's best friend: There are several sites designed to help you teach a variety of subjects.
Check out LessonPlansPage.com for teacher resources for all age groups. You might want to start with its "Lesson Plan Guide -- 10 Steps To Developing A Quality Lesson Plan." From there, you've got several options for math worksheets, science projects, language arts activities and more.

Go to Education-world.com, where the "Lesson Planning Channel" front page features seasonal lessons -- Presidents Day, Black History Month, Dental Health Month -- plus a "Lesson Plan of the Day." Use the left-side navigation bar to find word games, sudoku, five-minute fillers, or lesson plans by subject.
Try Teacher Planet if you want variety: There are more than 12,000 selections. Top features include "Water Conservation," which includes plans, worksheets and additional resources, and "Rights & Responsibilities," a group of lessons and activities that address discrimination, body image and a host of other topics that teenagers and preteens deal with on a daily basis.
