Patriot Day

September 11, 2018

Students on the 8th grade teams finished a unit about the 9/11 tragedy in 2001, now known as Patriot Day.

The event happened before these students were even born but the students realized the importance of being informed about our past and being empathetic to fellow Americans.

Students on the Patriot team worked at learning stations including the following: writing a haiku about the tragedy, determining which dramatic photos touched their hearts and writing about them, putting themselves in the place of young children who were waiting for their parents to return on the fateful day, analyzing patriotic music, listening to animated stories from Story Corps, viewing the current memorials that are in these locations and writing a K9 obituary on a podcast; eulogizing a Search and Rescue dog who had served its country after 9/11.
