Terrific well-indexed resource for lesson plans

Ohio State University's History Teaching Institute has created a terrific and well-indexed resource for lesson plans.

One collection called "Back to History" lists lessons by grade level.  The lessons in its "United States History" collection are organized chronologically for easy skimming to find the right lesson.  They also have links to lesson plans based on interpreting cartoons housed in its own cartoon library and another one based on teaching with historic clothing artifacts.  One particularly creative and engaging lesson in that collection involves studying the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory disaster.
