Saturday Round Up: Free Resources for Teachers

I love the Innernetswebthingplace. There are so many amazing and wonderful free resources for teachers: lesson plans, videos and videoconferencing, animations, photographs, primary source documents, and more.

This is a select list. Everything is free–the only exception is Graphite, which offers reviews and lists of all kinds of resources, ranging in price from free to rather expensive. I looked at a lot of these, and it seems to me that many of the free resources equal or even in some cases exceed the quality of those that you’d have to pay for.
