It's crazy to think that most of my 5th graders this year were not yet born on September 11, 2001. I remember the day vividly in my mind - exactly where I was, how I found out, how I felt. I was not too far off from their age.
Sharing my experience on this day with them, as well as educating them about the events of the day and its impact on our nation, is so important.
Currently in Social Studies, we are focusing on Reconstruction after the Civil War. This packet was created to tie in Reconstruction after the Civil War to Reconstruction after September 11, 2001.
I would love to hear how you remember this special day with your students! Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
