In sifting through various sites this week I found several such as Teach 21 that are searchable by grade level, subject, and/or standard. I found one site – the Salvadori Center that charges for their lesson plans. All you can see a synopsis of the project but no information on grade level or standards. Some sites are age or grade level specific. For example the Human Computer Interaction Lab site is for students 7-11 years old and BIE has the links assorted by grade level. What I like about ePals is you choose your preferred language and age bracket to filter projects. I found a perfect project for my school’s 7-8 language arts classes, to communicate with a small community in Canada about the similarities and differences from the cultural perspective of indigenous people. You have to do some searching but Edutopia does have lessons, there is a cool middle school project dealing with zombies.
The site I like the most is West Virginia’s Teach 21. The site is searchable by content and grade level. Once you find a project it unwraps the academic and Century 21 standards.
