Utilize the new lesson plans to will help students reflect on 9/11 in a constructive way, inspiring them to “adopt causes” and take positive action through other community service projects and good deeds.

With the guidance of educators, these official 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance materials will help children learn valuable, heartfelt and constructive lessons about the 9/11 experience and the ways in which they can serve their community.
