#3. Patriot Day
by Barbara J. Feldman
Patriot Day Printable (** for premium members only)
In December of 2001, Congress passed a joint resolution permitting the President to declare September 11 of each year as Patriot Day, in commemoration of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. It is customary to fly the flag at half mast, and to observe a moment of silence in honor of those who lost their lives.
Families and Work: 9/11 As History
Created in 2002, Families and Work features four 9/11 lesson plans for K-12 students. Each of the age-appropriate lesson plans is available in both Word and PDF. Other worthwhile clicks are comments from students about 9/11, tips for parents and teachers about talking to kids about 9/11, and a page of related online and offline resources.
Hoover Library-Museum: What America Means to Me
In August, 2002, Hoover Library-Museum (in Washington D.C.) planned an exhibit of children’s artwork related to the September 11 terror attacks. They announced it to the press, and expected to receive 200 or 300 works of art. Instead they got 1600! “We were determined to hang each and every piece and expanded our show by setting up boards covered with drawings all over our lobby. We are happy to report that every piece of art that was sent to us was on exhibit in the museum!” Although the online exhibit is but a fraction of the actual exhibit, I was really glad I was able to see it, and I think you will be too.
Library of Congress: Witness and Response
This Library of Congress 9/11 commemorative exhibit includes “an abundance of original material including prints, photographs, drawings, poems, eye-witness accounts and personal reactions, headlines, books, magazines, songs, maps, videotapes and films.” The online exhibit can be traversed by department (such as American Folk Life Center or Geography and Map Division) or via the object list. The contribute link will take you to the September 11 Digital Archive site (see next review) to submit a story or artwork.

#5. Note from a Reader
I signed up to see if this was good for my 4 year old grandson and found that the content was very good, diverse and educational. I will give you a big applause for a job well done in a little higher age bracket…. So we will be back when Mikey becomes 6 to 8. I can only hope that you will still be around with a clean and interesting web site.
Thank you very much.
