I did end up deciding to do a study of the day, and was very happy when I found a lapbook to help. I was even happier when In The Hands of a Child agreed to give me a free copy of their September 11th Project Pack to use and review.
I really appreciate this activity pack, not only because of the fun and interesting projects, but because of the topics that are presented. Included in the reading and discussion material is information such as:
- A thorough but sensitive explanation of the events
- A detailed timeline
- Background information on Islam, al-Qaeda, and Osama bin Laden
- Rescue teams
- Heroes–definitions and qualities
- Some of the long-term impact of the events
For this year, I’m planning on having us read the information and choosing as many of the projects as we can fit in. Which, in my mind, is one of the beautiful things about lapbooks!
If you are interested in doing a September 11th lapbook unit study, you can still get one of these Project Packs from In The Hands Of A Child. And, the really really nice part is–they are selling the Project Pack EBook for just $6.00 right now!
Are you doing anything special to commemorate the anniversary of September 11, 2001?
