9/11 Remembrance

Remembering and Learning Resources for 9-11, updated for 2015.

Still Learning Something New

mr_rogers_helpers_quoteA couple of years ago our Patriot Day studies were geared a little more toward the younger boys than my big kids.  Here’s the link to that study and the resources we used.  https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2013/09/10/teaching-resources-for-patriot-day/

And, for this year, I’ve found the following resources to further our studies.

“Teach and Learn” from the 9/11 Memorial Museum  https://www.911memorial.org/teach-learn

President Bush’s Address to the Nation from 9/11   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbqCquDl4k4

Photo Gallery and More from the New One World Trade Center  http://onewtc.com/gallery-images/2069/august-2014-site-update-looking-north-east-image-2

B and I (and which ever big kids happen to be home) will be researching and learning from these more mature sites:

Video Facts and Timeline of 9/11 Attacks   http://www.history.com/topics/9-11-attacks

Post 9/11 and Terrorist Attacks Articles   http://www.factmonster.com/spot/sept11features.html

Resources For Learning About Skyscrapers

“Skyscraper Day” is Sept. 3! Here’s the online resources from our study last year. It was a fun one! We learned a lot, too.

Still Learning Something New

skyscrapersWhen we looked over this week’s special days (https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2014/08/29/special-days-in-september-2014/), the 3rd caught our attention, “Skyscraper Day”! This is a day to appreciate and admire the world’s tallest skyscrapers. With all the fantastic resources I found, this study will probably hold our interest for more than just a day.  I’m thinking it’s going to be “Skyscraper Rest of the Week or Longer” for us.  Below are the links we’ll be following as we learn about skyscrapers.  This study will cover the subjects of science, math, language arts, history, geography, literature, and art.  Most of the resources will apply to all ages.
