So unless you've been living under a rock, like I do most of the time, you already know that Sunday was the 10th Anniversary of 9-11. It seems everywhere we turn there is a remembrance or tribute to 9-11. This is a very good thing. We should NEVER forget those who were lost in that tragedy or the lessons it taught us. I got to wondering yesterday, how do other homeschool moms explain 9-11 to their kids??

My kids were quite young when this happened, so we basically told them that some "bad" people hurt a lot of other people. As they have gotten older, they are able to understand more and more of the reasons these "bad" people did this and what actually happened. I can see a whole Unit Study blossoming out of this. I bet there are already some out there. I guess my point is that this is an important event in the history of our nation. I want my children to know and understand what happened that day.
