Yesterday we took a field trip to the Kentucky 9/11 Memorial at the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery. Before heading to the Memorial we watched this BrainPOP movie to learn a little about the events that took place on September 11, 2001.
We met a few of our homeschooling friends from the Fort Knox Field Trip Co-op. During our visit I read aloud this Fact Sheet from the 911 Memorial website. Then we looked at pictures that I printed out of the Memorial that was built in the place where the Twin Towers were.
Although the weather was a little grey and drizzly, our walk was heartfelt and peaceful along the blacktop path.
