Remembering 9/11: The Man Who Walked Between the Towers


As we approach 9/11, my favorite book to share with my students is The Man Who Walked Between the Towers. Being a 4th grade teacher, I am now in the time where my students were not born when the terror happened. All the know is what they hear from their parents, on TV, etc. This book explains the grandeur of the Towers without the horror of the day. Below, I have embedded a YouTube video of the book. 



Also, by {clicking here}, you will have access to free online games using words from the book.  

What do you do with your students to honor 9/11?

I use this book on 9/11 too. It is great for my little first graders. I actually bought the book a couple of years ago at a Goodwill. It has probably been my best book purchase from Goodwill.
