Our 9/11 Attacks lesson plan introduces students to the events on September 11, 2001, in New York City and other places in America. The lesson also discusses the effects of 9/11 on the U.S. and the world. Also included is information on the first responders, those who died, and the U.S. response to the attacks. During this lesson, students are asked to answer questions in groups about their personal understanding of 9/11 and how the information in the lesson changed or altered their understanding of the event. Students are also asked to define related terms as they relate to 9/11 and use them in a sentence not related to 9/11.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define 9/11, identify and explain events on September 11, 2001, and their subsequent effect on the U.S.
