Teachers can use the free resources on Discovery Education to supplement their existing curriculum. Whether you're looking for lesson plans, worksheets, or virtual field trips, it's easy to get lost searching the massive collection on the site. Teachers can use Puzzlemaker with their own vocabulary to make crossword and other types of puzzles. Or they can flip their classroom, assigning specific videos or interactive activities to introduce new ideas at home. Students and parents will find a variety of programs, including WebMath (a math help site), Science Fair Central, annual science competitions, and more. 

With the paid features, teachers can access math, social studies, and science digital textbooks, explore a variety of streaming media, and connect with other educators professionally. The streaming videos can be hit or miss, so make sure to screen for appropriateness. Also, check out the Builder Tools to create and select assignments and assessments for students.

High quality curated resources with a ton of media options
This is a great resource and its free. I have experienced the paid version and deeply wished they made it available for free or a more reasonable price, it really does have much more resources. The student facing products are extremely basic and not engaging, definitely more of a teacher facing website. I would love to see them open up more of the content that is behind the paywall, maybe in a rotating way of letting some videos/resources go free for a month at a time.
