    Extremely satisfiedI used this to supplement my September 11th/Patriotism/Armed Forces unit for 5th graders. I was able to include age-appropriate images and facts for the kids to learn from. I am changing to a much younger grade and I am sad not to be able to use it this year, because it is FANTASTIC!

    This PPT was used as part of a informational text set. Our school started the ALICE training for safety. The active shooter event that occurred in El Paso, TX at the beginning of the school year hit home. We are only one-hundred miles from El Paso and the students started wondering about other events in our Nation that had caused changes in safety regulations in our country. None of my student were born at the time of Sept. 11--9/11, and they did not have people around them who had spoken of the event. Although I am not a history teacher, this PPT helped "bring home" what terrorism has done to our nation and the safety of its citizens. This helped the students create and develop personal schema with which to identify text-to-world.
