As the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, 2001 approaches, many trusted partners have worked to provide educational resources for teaching about the historic event to various grade levels.
From an “Anniversary in the Schools” webinar taking place on Friday, September 10, to age-appropriate interactive lesson plans and field trip activities, many of the available online resources for teaching and learning about 9/11 are outlined on the DPI’s Social Studies webpage.
Earlier this year, the 9/11 Wisconsin Memorial and Education Center opened in Kewaskum. In addition to visiting the memorial itself, its website offers a number of educational resources for teachers. Prior to the memorial’s opening, Gov. Tony Evers proclaimed June 13, 2021 as Wisconsin 9/11 Memorial Day.

Educators should review suggestions and determine what best meets the needs of their students.
