Federal Resources for Educational Excellence (FREE) makes it easier to find teaching and learning resources from the federal government. The site features more than 1,500 federally supported teaching and learning resources in the areas of science, math, history and language arts from dozens of federal agencies. New sites are added regularly. The website was originally conceived in 1997 by a federal working group and launched a year later. It was redesigned and relaunched in November 2006. FREE is among the most popular K-12 websites maintained by the U.S. Department of Education because of the many great resources being offered by participating federal agencies.
