The events of September 11, 2001, changed our nation forever. Student in grades 7 – 12 are old enough to remember the events of this historic day. This guide is designed to help students consider the idea of memory in connection to the events of September 11. The activities included are presented in three parts: a pre-visit activity, introducing students to the ideas presented in the exhibit; a visit activity, designed to provide the students with the tools to be critical viewers of the exhibit; and a post-visit activity, where students connect the information collected in the previous two sections, creating new knowledge.
Note: The visit activity portion of this guide was designed to be used for tours of the National Constitution Center's feature exhibition 9/11: A Nation Remembers but could be adapted to fit the classroom.
