Resources from the 9/11 Memorial & Museum

9/11 Memorial & Museum, The Jewish Education Project

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum offers interactive lesson plans for students in grades 3 to 12 that address the 9/11 attacks, their ongoing repercussions, and the history of the World Trade Center. Lessons plans are divided by grade level and theme.

The 9/11 Primer provides educators and online learners with foundational information about the World Trade Center and the Twin Towers, the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath, and the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site.

The educational digital exhibition recounts the events of September 11, 2001, through the personal stories of those who witnessed and survived the attacks. Told across 14  posters, this exhibition includes archival photographs and images of artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection.

Included in this resource are three links:

  • Lesson plans
