This website features a plethora of interesting science lessons, both full and mini, with a variety of different student activities and exercises.

Technical Remarks:

My only concern would be determining exactly how many of these lessons are compatible with the CA Science Standards without examining each and every one of the lessons individually?
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about 45 minutes reviewing different lesson plans for various grade levels- everything from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Most of the activities seemed fairly easy for students to understand and for teachers to teach without problems. I think that the Science Jeopardy lesson would especially be useful for just about any grade.

This is a great source of lessons to use. I will use the ice cream making lesson tomorrow for 8th graders.

There's definately a lot of information here. It could be a good resource for a beginning teacher who has no lesson plans of their own.
