    I know it is often difficult to find science and social studies resources, so I thought it would be convinient to make a thread where everyone can share resources. I will add the resources that people post to the list in this first post. I will sort the resources by science and social studies and then further by topic/unit.
    ****= newly added

    Let's make this a "sticky" thread, so it's always at the top of the list of threads.

    Thank you for this post! It is difficult to find science resources. Here are some.

    Here are a couple that are somewhat related to social studies:

    OK, if you haven't gone to my thread with all the free links, now would be a great time. Don't let the number of pages daunt you - most things are less than a year old, and I routinely go through the post to check links, because nothing is worse than going to use one, only to find it is broken, or no longer in service. I continuously post as new stuff comes into my focus, and welcome others to post. You will have to search a bit, since it is mostly stream of consciousness for me. If anyone want to "organize" for me, I will gladly work with you to edit the posts and pages! Hope you find something you enjoy, and if there is something very specific you are looking for, let me know - I am an equal opportunity browser, especially in the summer!

    I don't use printables, but I swear by the site, www.ducksters.com. It has been such help for kids researching for reports because it is perfect for 5th through 8th grades with just enough information and not an overwhelming amount.

    As an added resource for anyone in the southeastern Pennsylvania area here is information about the developing teacher programs at the new Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia.
    For some reason I am not able to post the link so just go on Google and type in Museum of the American Revolution then click on programs at the top which will lead you to educator resources.

    Thanks
