The tragic events of September 11,2001

changed the U.s., and the world, forever. For

those who were old enough to watch those

events unfold, that day and the aftermath

of the attacks has left an indelible mark. For

those too young to remember, the legacy

of 9/11 shapes their lives as a central event

in history.

Many schools will want to commemorate

the 10th Anniversary of September 11,

2001 and find ways to honor and remember

those who lost their lives. HISTORY

offers this guide to provide suggestions for

9/11 activities and commemorations.

ALL SCHOOL ACTIVITIES:

1. Organize an all-school assembly with

simple readings or announcements

about why we should remember 9/11

and those who lost their lives. Since

September 11th falls on a Sunday,

schools may want to organize these

assemblies on Friday, September 9th or

Monday, September 12th.

2. Many communities were affected by

9/11 and lost family and friends in this

tragedy. If any children at your school

lost family members or friends, dedicate

a memorial or plant a tree to honor

those who were lost.

3. Many brave Americans - from firefighters

to police to everyday citizens- courageously

helped others on 9/ 11 and

in the aftermath of the attacks. Schools

may want to establish a "Community

Spirit Award" to honor those in your

community who have contributed

to making your school a better place.

These awards can be offered in honor

of the outpouring of sacrifice and generosity

after 9/11 that so many Americans

remember.

4. Collect small contributions for the

National September 11 Memorial & Museum,

the Flight 93 National Memorial,

the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial,

or another 9/11 Memorial of your

choice.

5. Another way to honor the memory

of 9/11 is for students to donate time

through service projects. Visit Service

Nation or Operation Honor Cards to get

started, or organize a service project at

your school or nearby.

CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES:

1. In classroom time, have students

review a timeline of what occurred on

September 11,2001. Review on a map

where and when the 9/ 11 attacks took

place. Advanced high school and college

students can also review the 9/ 11

Commission Report.

2. Have students take time for a free-writing

exercise about what they remember

about 9/11/2001, or what they have

learned about that day from others.

Have students share these writings, if

they feel comfortable, in a larger class or

group.

3. Creative projects can be an effective

way for students to work through their

emotions about difficult topics such

as 9/11. Working in small groups, have

students design a mural or poster

about 9/11 and what it means to them.

Students may also want to design their

own 9/11 memorial.

4. Have students locate newspaper

articles published in the days after 9/11

online or at the library and create a 9/11

scrapbook or notebook. The New York

State Archives 9/ 11 Memory & History

site has great tips for preserving related

items: www.nyshrab.org/memory/index.

shtml

5. Middle school and high school students

can playa role in preserving the history

of 9/11 by interviewing community

members about their memories of

what happened that day. You may want

to link with a local history museum or

historic society to organize a 9/11 oral

history project.
