Primary Curriculum Resources

    Where do you start when you are planning for instruction? My classmates and I have started sorting through all of the good web sites to locate the best ones for different subject areas. The subjects we addressed were Math (K-3), Health (9-12), History (K-3), and Science (4-6). For each subject we offer the sites for national organizations, national standards, and web based curricular & instructional resources. I am providing an outline of these resources with web addresses.

Mathematics K-3

               http://www.nctm.org
This site was chosen for both the national organization and the national standards.

Health 9-12

http://www.siecus.org/

SIECUS stands for Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States. This site was also chosen for national standards and curricular resources.

    The list is certainly not comprehensive, but they are the best sites that we located for our subject area and grade level. Within all of the sites are hundreds of links to other related sites. Many of the related sites are suitable for all grade levels and subjects and they are categorized to make it easier to find exactly what you need.
