Includes 1 cover page and 30 basic-lined notebooking pages.
We plan to take some time this week and discuss and learn more about some of the events that took place 11 years ago today. My youngest kids were only 2 and 5 at that time but I remember it like it was yesterday. I was making breakfast while my husband was out feeding the animals with our children. I had the news turned on in the family room and saw the first plane crash into the first Trade Center. I immediately ran out and got my husband. We knew in our hearts it wasn’t an accident and when we saw the second plane crash our first thoughts were confirmed. This is an important time in our country’s history and I’m sure we can all remember where we were or what we were doing when that fatal attack happened on our country’s soil. I feel it’s my duty to pass these memories on to my children.
When my youngest children were very young, I only told them of much of the heroism that took place and a few other details. But I didn’t want to worry their little minds with fear of this happening again. But now that they are older, I feel it’s time for them to see more of what happened that day. While I’m choosing to teach my kids more about 9/11 than you may choose to, the pages are designed and appropriate for any age child.
Below are a few resources I found that you could use alongside these pages. My children are older, so please review the resources below to make sure they would be appropriate for your children as some of the material is very graphic.
- The official 9/11 website
- Hearts of the Matter put together some great resources and ideas (mostly aimed at high school aged kids but there are some things appropriate for younger children as well).
- Netflix - Rebirth
- National Geographic – How It Was: Voices of 9/11
