I ran across this site and it seems pretty good. It would be a good resource for your projects. It seems to have good information.
There is a good chance that you started with this site and are already aware of it. The site is a pretty through look at the topics that we would cover this semester. Make sure you look for the toolbars at the left of the page.
The ABOUT site has many different different topics not just about science. There is one for the environment, geography, and geology. Those links are here:
This site has a wide collection of topics and activities for both learning about space, but actually exploring the heavens. If you are planning on learning more about Astronomy or want to start exploring on your own, this would be a good site to look at. Thanks to Elliot Phillips for recommending this site for this list.
This site here is not quite as all-inclusive as some of the ones above, but it is written specifically for HS students and younger so it might be a place to go to first to see if they have the topic you need help on.
Here is a course syllabus from Ohio State. It is well organized and thorough. This will have more advanced discussion on topics than some of the other sites.
