To Instructors / Parents: Scroll down the page for activities, links, and videos.

All are welcome to participate in quizzes, etc:

Time does not allow for in-depth classroom study of U.S. Holidays, so I have created online activities through which parents and students may jointly work.  I recommend that parents preview the material and share the items with your children as you deem appropriate. I do ask that you and your child attempt the quizzes together.

For these assignments, grades are not recorded based upon quiz responses. Instead, grades are given to students for participation. If you are not able to participate in these activities, please let me know, so that other arrangements can be made.

Proceed through this page at your own pace.  Due date is Sept. 12.

SchoolCenter Picture Patriot Day

Remembering 9-11-01 SchoolCenter Picture

An informed citizenry is the bulwark of a democracy.
~Thomas Jefferson

My current 4th grade students were not even born by September 11, 2001. They do not have a primary source recollection of the day's events.  I have compiled several resources for educators and students. Please contact me (kdubin@ccusd93.org) to comment or if you have additional valuable links and resources that I may add to this page.

Thank You,

Mrs. Dubin

This thoughtful video is appropriate for 3rd-6th grade elementary students.  Even the first half of this video is appropriate for grades 1 & 2 to serve as a "9-11 Primer". Click (or copy and paste into your URL) for the link:

This video references the BrainPop terrorism video.  You must be a BrainPop member to access the terrorism video, and watching it is NOT a requirement for this assignment.
