Wikipedia: Great for researching small class projects. Not so great to be cited as a "real" resource for big school projects.
New York Times Archive: An excellent place to find old (or new) newspaper articles.
Google Scholar: A great way to search the internet when you're doing a project and cut out all those unrelated non-educational links you don't need.
