EdHelper boasts a comprehensive collection of links to instructional materials in all subject areas. The site currently has more than 1,000 WebQuests, 6,200 lesson plans, and almost 7,000 other resources.

The layout is simple, made up mostly of text links.

Resources are categorized according to subject area, and an onsite search tool helps users find specific information quickly. There is also a collection of links to current educational news.

This site was definitely created with the busy teacher in mind. It is a one-stop shopping plaza for lesson plans and activities for any subject from animals to technology. All the links are briefly annotated. Teachers are invited to submit their own lesson plans as well as use the teacher tools to create math and vocabulary work sheets. Currently, the worksheet generators are capable of creating eight different kinds of work sheets for classroom use. There is also a link to free Teacher's Toolbox software, ClassBuilder.
