PBS: America Responds5 stars

"America Responds is a snapshot of PBS's coverage of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. This Web site was maintained in the months immediately following the attacks, and now serves as an archive of related resources, analysis and discussion from that moment in time." This site has incredible depth, and is the only one of today's selections not created specifically for kids. Don't miss the thirty-four one-minute videos crafted by nine independent film makers in answer to the question "How has your life changed after September 11?"

Scholastic.com: America's New Challenge5 stars

Scholastic.com consolidates eight Special Reports about the U.S. war on terrorism into America's New Challenge. Although each section is excellent, I thought the Central Asia feature was outstanding. Visit to learn about the history, geography and people of Afghanistan. You'll find it by scrolling down the page to the For More Info headline. Other highlights include The Muslim World, and Bioterrorism.
