Social Study * Remembering 9/11

Tuesday & we are back in another week of school . Today’s lesson is History

Tomorrow is 9/11 and a day of remembrance. Do you remember what you where when you heard the news ? My family was suiting in the doctors office in Michigan with my son getting a check up when we saw the news. My husband called family in New York ( since about half are cops to check on everyone) . That day had an impact on everyone – so lets share that with the next generation so that it will not be repeated>>> Lisa

But like me where your kids too young or not born yet? How do we explain this to the next generation?

  • As what they know about it?
    • Read a book
    • Take them to a local museum
    • Talk to them about being an American & about Bigotry
  • Talk to them about the Hero’s and the bad guys.
  • Make sure they have No questions.

This is one of the many books avaiable !

A True Book: Natural Disasters series investigates the events leading up to a disaster, explores the causes, and ponders how the events changed, or could alter, history. This series includes an age appropriate (grades 3-5) introduction to curriculum-relevant subjects and a robust resource section that encourages independent study. ( Grade 3-5 )

I made this flip book to help explain :

And give younger kids a place to draw, and express themselves. Lisa
