Tech and learn all about September 11 using interactives, timelines, lesson plans, and more from the Memorial Museum in New York. Learn all about the history of the World Trade Center, explore primary sources about 9/11, and much more. Do not miss the interactive Lady Liberty exhibit under the Teach and Learn menu to see a clickable photo of the artifacts left as an impromptu memorial created at a NY firehouse that lost 15 of its men. The FAQ page is a great starting point for those unfamiliar with the events of 9/11. A special section provides ideas for talking with children about 9/11. The site includes many media files: interviews, video and more to help understand September 11.

In the Classroom

Check the teacher lesson plans for ideas. the plans range from kindergarten to grade 12. Incorporate some of the interactives as part of your class commemoration of September 11. Have students record their own video or audio interviews. Try Spreaker, reviewed here, with adults who recall the day and add them to a class or school wiki memorial. Add a Speakpipe widget, reviewed here, to your wiki page so visitors can add their own recollections. If you do not have time to spend more than one class period on 9/11, Teach and Learn will provide rich experiences and material for discussion. Be sure to allow your students time to talk and ask questions about this disturbing day in history.
