Looking for something different to teach on 9/11? Let's educate our students and spark discussion on WHY the Twin Towers were targeted in this terrorist attack and how things could have been (and can be) different!
Throughout this interactive PowerPoint Presentation, your students will learn about what the World Trade Center does and consider why it was targeted in the September 11th attack performed by members of the terrorist group Al Qaeda in 2001. After viewing photos that briefly chronicle the events of that day and spark student interest, there is a link to a video which uncovers the planning, the attack and the aftermath of one of the most vicious and heartless attacks on the United States. To wrap up the lesson, there is a Reflection Activity that can be done individually, in partners, or small groups.
