Remembering 911

September 11th for kids made easy. Remember and honor the September 11th attacks by utilizing some of these simple resources for homeschool families and educators!

Remembering the September 11th Attacks

Being alive during the attacks on America on September 11th, 2001 made me realize just how little I learned in history class.

There were historical events my parents or grandparents lived through that I simply never knew about.

Because of this realization, I have a heavy heart each and every time September 11th arrives.

Remembering the September 11th attacks every year, reliving those moments, and sharing them with my children has been a crucial part of our existence since they entered the world.

Remembering the September 11th Attacks

My oldest was born in 2004 and my youngest in 2013.

Ever since they were old enough to comprehend a timeline of events we have walked through this terrible day together each year in September.

It is so incredibly important that historical events are recorded and remembered from the point of view of those who lived through it.

September 11th should not just be another memorized date.

Join me in utilizing these simple resources on September 11th for kids!

Teaching September 11th History

Educating the upcoming generation on September 11th history is incredibly essential and these are some of the awesome tools that will help you do it!

Get started by talking with your children about terrorism using this gentle approach via 9/11 Memorial.

Then, take a walk through their virtual September 11th timeline that I use with my very own kids each and every year!

Not only does this timeline cover the events of that fateful day, but it also includes a Ground Zero recovery timeline and a 1993 WTC bombing timeline.

Teaching 911 History

If you are teaching September 11th history in your homeschool or classroom, these next few resources will be great to lean on as well.

Pick a few of these simple resources and teach your kiddos a September 11th history lesson they aren’t soon to forget.

September 11th Resources for Kids

If you have littles and need simple hands-on September 11th resources for kids, these simple patriotic craft ideas can be a great opener to learning about this tragic day in American history.

Patriot's Day Crafts

All of these are perfect for celebrating Patriots Day & remembering September 11th.

If you have older children, consider encouraging them to work on a writing or art project to express how they feel after learning about the events that took place on September 11th, 2001.

Start by reading poetry in times like these via Imaginative Homeschool.

Then, have your children create their own poem, essay, or work af art to express their thoughts and feelings.

Another great option when it comes to teaching young students about September 11th is by utilizing the printable resources available on Teachers Pay Teachers!

This wonderful website has a great collection of free and not-so-free 9/11 printables created by teachers & home educators.

While I tried to keep this post focused on the free resources available, I still felt TPT was definitely worth a mention!

Hey guys! I’m Mary, homeschool mom of 3 amazing kiddos.

I’m so excited that you decided to check out my little corner of the world!

If you have been following our journey for any length of time, you already know that I’m obsessed with coffee, organization, and all things simple.

I’m also a huge dog lover and introvert 💗

My homeschool style is very eclectic.

I enjoy a solid mixture of structure and free range. I set goals for myself and my children each week, but I put no pressure on perfection.

We use a wide variety of curriculum in our home.

Some of our current favorites are The Good and the Beautiful, Life of Fred, Beautiful Feet Books, and Lifepac.

While my kids do spend a good amount of time learning at desks, they also spend countless hours exploring their creativity and practicing a little independence.

I love mountains, rainy days, and sitting by the campfire. 

Our family recently relocated to the PNW and we have been enjoying finding new nature spots to explore together 🙌🏼

I can’t wait to connect and share all the things I’ve learned on our new journey! 

Just a Note…
