Hello fellow science members! I am getting ready to embark on this wonderful journey of teaching and am starting to build up my library. I was wondering if anyone had any great resources for some lessons or just resources in general to share with me! Obviously I am college student trying to save as much money as possible so the cheaper the better! (and besides this site)

I just ended my journey! Along the way I managed to find some gems.
[li]First off, you have to check out the NSTA Learning Center! Do a few searches and you'll see. If you're not an NSTA member they have cheap memberships for students - but you can also hit the library and I'm sure you will find them there. I used lessons and ideas from their journals right up until the last months before retiring.[/li]
[li]I have attached links to a bunch of STEM activities from grades 1 through 8 that I shared at workshops.[/li]
[li]PHet Colorado has amazing simulations in all the sciences with teacher-created activities. [url=http://phet.colorado.edu]http://phet.colorado.edu[/url][/li]
[li]Khan Academy [url=http://www.khanacademy.org]http://www.khanacademy.org[/url] has tutorials and I would often tell students to check this site out as a back up to what I'm teaching.[/li]
[li]For physics lessons, handouts, tutorials visit [url=http://www.physicsclassroom.com]http://www.physicsclassroom.com[/url][/li]
[li]I have found [url=http://rubistar.4teachers.org]http://rubistar.4teachers.org[/url] to be an invaluable resource for making rubrics. [/li]
[li]almost any NASA site is amazing for astronomy education.[/li]
[li]for life sciences, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute has incredible videos, simulations, etc. [url=http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive]http://www.hhmi.org/biointeractive[/url] ; the Biology Corner has great stuff: [url=https://www.biologycorner.com/]https://www.biologycorner.com/[/url] ; and I couldn't do without Explore Biology: [url=http://www.explorebiology.com/]http://www.explorebiology.com/[/url][/li]
[li]in chemistry, the American Association of Chemistry Teachers has lessons, activities, etc for all grades: [url=https://teachchemistry.org/classroom-resources]https://teachchemistry.org/classroom-resources[/url] and so does the American Chemical Society [url=https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/education.html]https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/education.html[/url][/li]
This should be a good start!
Hope this helps,
