I found this website called Newsweek which covers the 9/11 attack with a video for children. Here are a few learning activities you can use with it:
- 1 Journal Entry. Tell your child to write down their knowledge and thoughts about 9/11 in a journal entry format.
- 2 Discussion. Hold a discussion about September the 11th. Allow your child to ask questions.
- 3 “Thank You” Cards. Direct your child to create “thank you” cards for local firefighters and police officers.
- 4 Invite your child to draw a picture of the event.
In using the analogy of someone attacking someone else, your child can listen to how the wolf tried to blow down the pig’s house in the story, “The Three Little Pigs” (Learning to Read: Favorite Fairy Tales). Then, enjoy this exciting 9/11 Word Search below!
