The Exploratorium has put together a huge list of easy experiments you can do at home or in the classroom. Go ahead and give it a try.

The Science Spot has a great lesson on how to use the Scientific Method. This lesson is complete with recording ideas, safety precautions and using the scientific method while doing an actual experiment. Really helpful for new science teachers, but those of us who have been teaching a few years will love it too.

The National Science Teachers Association is a great resource for Outstanding Science Trade Books for students in grades K–12.
