If you have the money, I would definitely order a copy of the teacher edition. There are many cool activities that are explained in the teacher edition that I use at some of the tour stops. While I tend to "spice them up" and add my own resources to the activities, the background information and some of the teaching masters are helpful.
In terms of finding grant money, I have only written grants for the "Troy Foundation for Edicational Excellence," a non-profit community organization that specifically supports innovative learning opportunities in our school district.
However, here is a link to a website that provides tips for writing educational grants. http://www.ehow.com/how_4473087_write-educational-grants.html
I hope this helps!
