I was drinking coffee and preparing for the days schooling. I was watching the morning news when the first attack happened and saw the second plane crash into the other tower. I heard about the third and fourth plane crashes as those reports came in. My children (just three of them back then) were witnessing all of it. We were discussing it last night and the memories are still just as shocking and sickening for them as they are for me.
A couple of years ago, when these kids were teens and young adults, we put together a remembrance study geared towards their maturity level. Here’s the links for the online resources we used. I checked them and all are still working and relevant. https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2014/09/11/911-remembrance/
And, here’s the resources for younger children that we’ve been using for Patriot Day as our youngest two boys learn about those horrible events that happened to their country just a few years before they were born https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2013/09/10/teaching-resources-for-patriot-day/
