Books and resources to help children learn about 9/11

Today marks the 12th anniversary of the attacks on 9/11. For most adults, it’s hard to believe that so much time has passed since that terrible day. For some older kids, this day brings back fear and anxiety. However, others may be learning about the attacks for the first time this week if they were born after 2001 or are too young to remember.

Here are some resources for parents and teachers to use with their kids today as the nation remembers.

  1. Today’s Scholastic News top story: Remembering 9/11.
  2. A collection of books for children and resources for parents.
  3. A collection of teacher resources and classroom activities.
  4. A guide to talking with kids about war, violence, and natural disasters.
