The Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project (AIG~IRP) provides a large choice of instructional resources for Science. Choose from grade level bands to begin viewing available resources. Download lessons and materials in Word format. Lessons include Common Core Standards and complete lesson plans including assessments. At the time of this review lessons were only available in the 6-8 and High School level bands. However, the project is continually adding lessons so it is worth checking occasionally for other grade levels.
