I got an email from BrainPop yesterday informing me of a new video on 9/11. I immediately took a look and…wow…it is great.
Using the popularity of Tim and Moby to tackle such a difficult subject for school-age children really works. The video is informative without being shocking. It sets a mood of respect and compassion for those who lost their lives in the Twin Towers.
Most importantly for me, it does a great job of explaining terms like Islam, Fundamentalism (in all religions), Terrorism, and more.
You can find the 9/11 video here.
Today our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who perished and with the survivors of this great tragedy.
