Remembering 9/11

It’s that time again when we are all sadly reminded that America was under attack in 2001. The unthinkable happened.

Last Friday, I showed my students a couple of kid-friendly videos, a heartfelt song, and then we took a virtual tour of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City.

First I showed Tim and Moby’s video on BrainPop.

The next informative video I showed is from Randy Maurer, a principal at Eastern Elementary School. He does an incredible job of teaching what the New York City skyline looked like before 9/11 and how it looks today. He tells the events of this tragic day and how America stood strong and fought back. I love how he emphasizes that we should be thankful for our every day “superheroes” around us.

After this informative video, I showed a song written by Dave Pasquarello that is heartfelt and emotional and includes a message that our students should all take away from this tragic day. Heroes do not wear capes. Our everyday heroes were visible and in action on 9/11 – fireman, policemen, EMT, and every day civilians. The song can be watched here:

The last thing we did was “buckle up” and depart for New York. We took a virtual tour of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. The students can choose where they want to go in the halls of the museum. The site is here: https://www.911memorial.org/interactive-museum-experience

This week, our students will complete more 9/11 activities using a CHOICE BOARD with a variety of activities that will allow our students to learn more about this day’s unthinkable events and how America stood strong.

As we approach the anniversary of this fateful day, let’s all remember those who lost loved ones and those who truly were heroes, putting others before themselves. God Bless America!

NEVER FORGET!
