September 11th Resources

Picture From Junk in Their Trunck

Wow, 10 years since September 11th will happen this weekend.  I still recall being in Seattle asleep in my apartment when my husband came rushing in urging me to come see what was going on in NYC.  Was this real?   It was like a scary movie… We both sat stunned as we watched the aftermath of the first plane; not knowing a second was about to hit.  I can recall so many details from that day like they happened yesterday.  I was teaching second grade and I remember wondering if I should say anything to my students or just wait and see if they had any questions…  I also worried that my husband (at the time an officer in the Navy) may be sent out to sea.  The day went on and more tragedy hit as we all know.  So many innocent people died that day because of hate.   I will never forget!  God Bless America!

Below are some resources online that I thought would be great to use in the classroom.
