Lesson Planet (Review)

Lesson Planet - Your lesson plan search engine. Find the best lesson plans for teachers including math lesson plans and science lesson plans.

If you are big on using lesson plans and worksheets, you may be interested in today's product review.
Lesson Planet boasts a whopping 150,000 online teacher reviewed lesson plans and 75,000 worksheets.  Users have the option of searching through lesson plans, worksheets and State Standards of Learning.

Major subject headings are:

  • Art and Music
  • Health and Nutrition
  • Geography
  • Research Resources (Encyclopedias and Libraries)
  • Social Studies
  • Education
  • Language Arts
  • Math
  • Science and Technology

There are several things about this particular product that I really didn't care for.  First of all, the lesson plans were more a list of objectives than an actual plan for a lesson.   The State Standards are a good idea, however almost 100% of the standards listed are 6-12 years old, so I doubt that they are still the standard.  I encountered numerous broken/dead links as well.

This product was not a good fit for our family, but like I said, for the Lesson Plan/Worksheet kind of person, this may be a really good resource.   Luckily, Lesson Planet offers a 10 day free trial membership for parents and teachers.  After your 10 day trial is up, membership is $39.95 annually.
