Activities for September 11

I know many of us remember 9/11/01 for some we were sitting at our desks in school, for others they were out and about, and for some they were at work. Each of us watching the horrors that unfolded right before our eyes. I know for myself I was sitting in my high school math class right at the start of my sophomore year watching everything unfold on the TV and hoping for my uncle who was at the Pentagon. It was hard then and still hard today, especially for teachers and new teachers who having to incorporate this into their curriculum.

Now 10 years later and with 9/11 just around the corner here are some activities to incorporate with classroom lessons and discussions. These are just a few, please keep in mind all are not suitable for younger elementary students --- use your discretion and use them as valuable resources.
