There are numerous sites housing lessons and instructional units. I will post a few here as time goes on, as well as post some of my own work.
To start, check out Curriki. Share a resource here that you found and hope to use this year.

I have received multiple grants to assist in my students’ projects throughout the years. If you find yourself in need of some funds to make their investigations a reality, check out these grant opportunities:
Diack Ecology Education Fund: https://www.diackecology.org
“The Diack Ecology Education Program provides a system of grants, workshops and resources that are distributed to teachers and students in Oregon to encourage them to involve youth in field-based science inquiry and ecology studies. Field-based science inquiry provides the perfect opportunity to get students out of the classroom and into the natural world. “
Selco Credit Union: https://www.selco.org/community-giving/spark-creative-learning-grants
“Students come together on projects that excite curiosity, deepen understanding, and encourage new ways of seeing. Lack of funding should never get in the way of this kind of learning.”
