Lesson Planet is an online library of OER lesson plans, worksheets, apps, videos, and other instructional materials. Educators search through materials that are reviewed and approved by other teachers, and download them for classroom use or distribution. A free 10-day trial is available for new users; thereafter, subscriptions are available for purchase.
The core of the Lesson Planet product is its library of OER materials. Users search through Lesson Planet’s library of credentialed, teacher-vetted resources by searching for keywords. They then apply specific filters on the keyword search results such as grade level, subject, resource type (e.g. lesson plan, worksheet, unit, assessments, articles, etc.) and Common Core target standards to find specific resources. Once they have found an appropriate resource, educators can download, use, or distribute it to the class as necessary. Teachers can also upload their own materials, and collaborate with other educators on existing collections.
