The National Center’s Lesson Plan Database is a clearinghouse of democracy-related curricula, lesson plans, and classroom activities on the Internet. The database also includes full lesson plans developed by the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy.
The database is broadly searchable by keywords, grade bands, and curriculum subject areas. Individual records include a brief description of the lesson, its source, the national or state standards addressed by the lesson (if known), and a link to the web location at which the lesson plan can be found. Educators are invited to submit their own lesson plans for inclusion in the database, and to make referrals to worthwhile resources that should be included in the clearinghouse.
The Lesson Locator provides options to narrow or broaden your search.
