Summary : Have an Idea? Need an Idea?
Teachers Pay Teachers allow users to shop for lesson plans, class materials, unit plans, and more. All the materials posted to this app are made by teachers, and the cost of downloading the materials ranges from free to more than $10.

If users want to search for more specific materials, they can tap the “Browse” button and then search for materials by Grade Level, Subject, Type, or Price.

If users add it to their wish list or purchase it, they will be able to access the material using the “Wishlist” or “Purchases” button on the bottom of the screen.
