Remembering and honoring the tragic events of September 11th is an important part of our history. This lesson allows students to explore that day through the lens of the 5 themes of geography. A video link is provided for background and review if needed. Then students complete a DBQ activity. They can either work in teams to analyze photos, maps, and charts or finish the handout while completing a silent walk-around activity. Questions where students need to analyze each of the 5 themes are included on the handout. This lesson is useful for avoiding sensationalizing the tragedy or discussing sensitive issues by looking at 9/11 from a geographer's point of view.
Materials included- PowerPoint slides, Quick Teacher Reference Guide, Student handout and answer key
