9/11 Remembrance Activities

From the SmartBrief on EdTech (via our District Superintendent):
Journalist and author Suzie Boss provides resources for teachers who will be observing the 9/11 anniversary with their students. The National September 11 Memorial Museum at the World Trade Center offers multimedia resources and includes a section for teachers, and there are other sites that include interviews about the attacks and writing prompts for students. The Library of Congress American Memory project also has amassed a collection of pictures, songs and writing related to 9/11. Boss's blog

From one of our textbook representatives:
To help elementary students understand the significance of September 11, Pearson is providing for elementary teachers and students a website with:
·         White-board interactive timelines and activities 
·         Each timeline page includes Teacher Support materials, discussion questions and ideas on how to differentiate instruction.
These items can be accessed at    All of these materials are complimentary.  

The Center for Civic Education's 9/11 and the Constitution Web Site has powerful activities for secondary school students.
