This power point ( 114 slides) focuses on the World Trade Center buildings. It begins with how the buildings looked prior to the attack and then through the photos taken that day, they show the collapse of the buildings. At the end of the presentation, the Freedom tower is shown being built to memorialize those that lost their lives.
On slide 12, I have added the song "Skyscrapers" by Demi Lovato. The lyrics are so closely related to the events of that day. For example, "Go on and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground, like a skyscraper."
I get chills every time I use this presentation...so do the kids. After the presentation, I have the kids write in their journals. You can use a prompt or not, either way the students always have a lot to write about.
Not much has to be said when using this presentation.
I use this with 6th graders, I wouldn't show it grades 4 or lower.
